This is a radiant hand beaded skull that measures 21″ wide from horn to the the other horn, 29″ from the tip of the horn to the tip of the nose, 21″ from the top of the head to the tip of the nose and is 8″ wide across the eyes. Please note that the horns have some cracks in them but when the piece is hanging up on the wall no one can see them!! Please ask for more photos if you are at all concerned about how the horns look, we’d be more than happy to send them to you.
Huichol art abounds today in places like ebay, as well as tourist towns like Puerto Vallarta. A simple google search will bring up more web sites than there are Huichol!! The true art however is very difficult to find. It does not come from Huichol that live in the city, but rather those who actually live in the sierra, those who are involved in doing the ceremonies and rituals that make up what it means to be Huichol. Santos Bautista is one of the original bead artists from San Andres Cohamaita. Because of his experience we give him special metallic and iridescent glass beads to work with. They give just a little extra sparkle to his work which really set it apart from the rest of the market.
