Wixárika Huichol bead art is a traditional art form practiced by the Wixárika people of western Mexico. This intricate art involves applying small glass or plastic beads to surfaces like wooden or gourd objects, using beeswax or resin as adhesive.

Wixárika bead art designs are highly symbolic, reflecting the cosmology and spiritual beliefs of the Wixárika people. Common motifs include depictions of the sun, moon, stars, and sacred animals like eagles and snakes.

Colors in Wixárika bead art carry symbolic meaning: red represents life and fire, while yellow symbolizes the sun and energy.

Wixárika bead art is time-consuming and labor-intensive, requiring hours or days to complete. The art form has gained international recognition, sold in markets and galleries throughout Mexico and beyond. However, the commercialization of Wixárika bead art has led to cultural appropriation and exploitation issues, with some profiting without proper acknowledgement or compensation to the Wixárika people.
