“Origin of Huichol art”
The origin of Huichol art lies in an ancestral tradition, the physical transcription of the images visualized by the Huichol shamans; induced by the ingestion of Peyote (hikuri), his sacred cactus, which allows them to cross the threshold of the unknown and thus relate to the divine. These Huichol works of art are made with beads or thread (thread), each one carries symbolic motifs, stories from the Huichol culture and Huichol legends of their cosmogony that offer us an overview of Huichol society.
The elaboration of the Huichol stamen tables are true multicolored stamen paintings, the stamen is glued with Campeche wax (beeswax), where the Huicholes express the visions they have during their rituals, their stories and religion.
On the wood, the Huichol artist places beeswax on the entire piece until it is completely covered, then the strands of thread are glued one by one until the painting is completed; In making it, the Huichol artist develops various drawings and symbols representative of his culture and traditions.
To prevent discoloration of the yarns, do not expose this piece to direct heat or light as it may melt the Campeche wax (beeswax) adhesive. For cleaning it is with a delicate brush or exclusive air.
