The Huicholes or Wixárikas are an indigenous community that lives in the central west of the country of Mexico in the Sierra Madre Occidental, mainly in the states of Jalisco and Nayarit, as well as in some areas of Durango and Zacatecas.
This is one of the few artistic processes in the world whose creation is invariably linked to a mystical sense: the spirit as the raw material of art, and vice versa. Any piece in this group is based on experiences associated with the hikuri or peyote (Lophophora williamsii). From this interaction arise those colors and shapes that we observe in Wixárika art.
IMPORTANT NOTE: All sculptures are handmade once you make you purchase and you may note minimum difference in patterns on pictures shown.
