Looks like it has a lot of the aspects of a DMT trip in it. Pushing through a barrier of some sort to a higher level of being is a common experience, often including the guardian of the gate (often reptilian and /or with an open mouth), bird headed beings, and symbols of death. The sound of rushing water is also common, and the painting looks like it has some kind of watery nature to it.

Indeed, both of the ancient cosmic maps this is based on are entheogenic.
