  • Mitos y leyendas shares with you the legend of the silver fabric.
  • This is a Guarani story.
  • A warrior is tormented by guilt for a murder committed in a fit of passion.

Long ago, the story of Samimbi was told, a woman of incomparable beauty and a kind heart, who had the attention of two brave Guarani warriors.

One was named Jasyñemoñare, which meant «son of the Moon,» while the other was called Ñanduguasu, which translated to «ostrich.»

One night, while Jasyñemoñare sought the blessing of Tupã, the supreme god, to win Samimbi’s love, he spotted atop a giant tree a shining silver lace, its beauty enhanced by the moonlight.

Dazzled, he decided to climb the tree to obtain it and present it as a gift to his beloved.

At that moment, Ñanduguasu passed by and, noticing the dazzling fabric, became consumed with jealousy at the thought of his rival obtaining it before him.

Without hesitation, he shot an arrow that struck Jasyñemoñare, who fell to the ground and perished instantly.

Ñanduguasu, filled with remorse, attempted to take the fabric, but it tore apart in his hands, revealing itself to be simply a spider’s web.

Tormented by his action, Ñanduguasu carried the weight of his guilt for months until, finally, he confessed his crime to his mother.

Moved by the desire to console her son, who had been wandering aimlessly since Jasyñemoñare’s death, the mother took him to the tree where the tragic event occurred. To their surprise, they found another fabric identical to the previous one.

Determined to bring peace to her son, the old woman dedicated herself to studying the art of spiders as they skillfully wove their intricate designs.

Using the white strands of her hair as thread, the mother replicated with her needles every circle and line drawn by the spiders, until she managed to reproduce that extraordinary fabric and offered it as comfort to Ñanduguasu.
