ABOUT THIS PIECE OF HUICHOL BEADED ART

This Jaguar is an authentic Huichol Mexican Folk art piece crafted by Wirrarika indigenous people also known as Huichol. Huichol are famous for their beaded artwork and this jaguar  is a fine sample of their craft. It is decorated with sacred symbols such as the Peyote, the sun, the eagle and the scorpion.  To make each piece, Wirrarika indigenous people apply a layer of bees wax and attach each bead with no previous design or pattern, only their talent, imagination and knowledge linked to a shamanic vision of the universe that dates back to pre columbian times.
