Wixárika Huichol bead art is a traditional art form practiced by the Wixárika people of western Mexico. It involves applying small glass or plastic beads to a surface, such as a wooden or gourd object, using beeswax or resin as an adhesive. The designs are highly symbolic, reflecting the cosmology and spiritual beliefs of the Wixárika people, with common motifs including the sun, moon, stars, and sacred animals.

The art form is time-consuming and labor-intensive, and has gained international recognition. However, the commercialization of Wixárika bead art has led to issues of cultural appropriation and exploitation. It’s crucial to support and acknowledge the Wixárika people who originated this beautiful art form.
