This Huichol Art Skull is a testament to the traditional bead art of the Wixárika people of western Mexico. Each bead is meticulously applied onto a wooden surface using beeswax or resin, creating designs that are rich in symbolism and reflect the cosmology and spiritual beliefs of the Wixárika.

From depictions of sacred animals to celestial bodies, each element has a story to tell. The use of color also carries symbolic meaning – blue representing the ocean and sky, and green symbolizing the earth and natural world.

This labor-intensive art form requires countless hours, even days, to complete a single piece. Each Huichol Art Skull is not just a decoration, but a piece of cultural heritage, infused with the spirit and tradition of the Wixárika people.

📦 Order with confidence – we pack each order carefully and offer express shipping options. Custom gift wrapping 🎁 and special dedications are also available upon request. Have any questions? We’re here to help and typically respond within an hour.

NOTE: We respect and uphold the cultural integrity of this art form. The commercialization of Wixárika bead art has led to cultural appropriation and exploitation. Rest assured that each piece you purchase supports the indigenous artisans who meticulously crafted it.
