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.
This is a huge hand beaded Jaguar that measures 15″ head to the tail, 7″ Tall 4″ width.
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 Morelia Lopez are considered to be one of the most important families in the commercialization of the bead art. Morelia’s Father Floencio is by trade a politician, he has served his community as sheriff or commisario, and was the municipal delegate of his community.
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 and his daugther Morelia is able to create with this micro bead is absolutely astounding.Morelia’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
