What is the Makiritare font?
Makiritare is a display font for headlines that originates from a research work on pure geometry of great simplicity from a Venezuelan ethnicity artisanal form from men called Makiritare or Yecuana.

Despite having a prodigious symbolism in their art, they didn’t have until recently a font that is tailored to your expression.
