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 skull that measures 15″ wide from horn to the the other horn, 23″ from the tip of the horn to the tip of the nose, 18″ from the top of the head to the tip of the nose and is 7″ wide across the eyes.
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. Carlos Bautista is married to one of the grandchildren of Jacinto Lopez Ramirez, an older Huichol shaman considered to be the grandfather of the commercial bead art. Carlos lives in Rosas de San Juan the families ancestral ranch about 3 hours from San Andres Cohamiata the ancient Ceremonial Center deep in the Sierra Madre Mountains of Western Mexico. Florentino only comes to town once and a while but always brings wonderful pieces that reflect his commitment to his culture.
