🎨 Dimensions: 47.24″ x 23.62″
🎨 Materials: Colored yarns, wood, beeswax glue
🎨 Inspirational designs in Huichol art
Huichol art, rooted in ancestral tradition, originates from the spiritual visions of Huichol shamans. Their experiences, induced by ingesting Peyote (hikuri), their sacred cactus, are physically transcribed into intricate yarn paintings. Each piece carries symbolic motifs, tales from Huichol culture, and cosmogonic legends, offering a glimpse into the Huichol society.
These stunning pieces, created using a traditional technique, involve covering a wooden board with beeswax before painstakingly attaching threads of yarn one by one to form the painting. Each design and symbol is representative of the Huichol culture and traditions.
Maintenance: To preserve the vibrancy of the yarns, avoid direct exposure to heat or light, which could melt the Campeche wax (beeswax) adhesive. Cleaning should be done gently with a delicate brush or air exclusively.
Note: All paintings are handcrafted upon purchase, and minor variations in patterns may occur compared to the images shown.
