Abstract : This present paper deals with the production of the plastic artist Lastenia Canayo. The work of this artist is part of an emerging artistic circuit in the Peruvian Amazon, characterized by producing images related to the universe of plants with power. The artist stands out in this, in my opinion, for the choice of varied supports and the subject of her work that highlights as a process of individualization by creating the world of 'owners' through art. The notions of ?owners? are known by different names by each Amazonian society, each one ethnographically informed and understood according to control and protection relations which they set with the group with which they interact. It insert as well, through its iconographic production, the various beings, such as plants, animals, people, spirits, and things in the sociability of Shipibo-Konibo domain and Mastery.
