Immerse yourself in the enchanting world of Huichol art with our Vintage Huichol Beaded Gourd. This captivating piece, crafted in the late 80's, is a testament to the extraordinary craftsmanship and spiritual symbolism of the Huichol indigenous people.

At the center of this gourd, you'll find the revered peyote symbol, a sacred plant that holds deep spiritual significance in Huichol culture. Surrounding it, six majestic deer gracefully come to life through the intricate beadwork. These deer are revered as messengers of the gods, embodying the connection between the human and spiritual realms.
