Dear friends and clients, during these difficult times we have had to make a number of adjustments to our business model, to ensure the level of service that everyone has come to expect from us, we are now offering FREE DHL or Fedex express shipping on this piece. Welcome to Peyote People, my name is Kevin and together with my wife Beatriz we run a small gallery in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico that works directly with the Huichol Indians that live in San Andres Cohamiata, Jalisco. We believe that the artist is just as valuble as the art; every piece that we sell is marked with the artist name and has a stamp that states their tribal affiliation which adheres to the 1991 Indian Arts and Crafts Act. Wholesale inquires welcome. 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. Octaviano Lopez is the grandson of Jacinto Lopez Ramirez, an older Huichol shaman considered to be the grandfather of the commercial bead art. Octaviano lives in Agua Zarca the families ranch about 2 hours from San Andres Cohamiata the ancient Ceremonial Center deep in the Sierra Madre Mountains of Western Mexico. This piece was done with the Czech #13 micro beads that are almost half the size of the regular beads.
