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.
Florencio Lopez Carrillo is the only son of Don Jacinto Lopez Ramirez, a great shaman who was well documented in the 1970’s and is featured in the 1978 book ‘Art of the Huichol’. Jacinto and his family including Florencio are considered to be one of the most important families in the commercialization of the bead art. Florencio is by trade a politician, he has served his community as sheriff or commisario, and was the municipal delegate of his community. Because of his expirience we have gone to great lengths to import special Czech #13 glass beads for him to use in his work. For those who are not familiar with the micro bead, it is just about half the size of the regular bead that is commercially available here in Mexico. The detail that Florencio is able to create with this mirco bead is absolutely astounding. Florencio’s work should be cherished not only for its artistic value but also because he is actually involved in the preservation of his cultures traditions.
