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. Over the last 10years we have developed very close relationships with a number of Huichol families. Unlike most who buy their art in the city, we like to actually fly up into the Sierra to observe their ceremonies and rituals and take them supplies like the carvings that they use and new glass beads with irridescent colors that we import for our artists to work with.
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.
Huichol indian hand made bull skull with new epoxy resin glue.
We have been experimenting for some time now and now have our first piece using the traditional Huichol beading but instead of the bee´s wax, this piece uses a new epoxy resin glue that is weather resistant to hold the beads in place rain on shine.
Please note that this piece is more expensive that our regular pieces because of the new epoxy resin glue that permanently holds the beads in place.
This is a huge hand beaded skull that measures 21″ wide from horn to the the other horn, 25″ from the tip of the horn to the tip of the nose, 18.5″ from the top of the head to the tip of the nose and is 8″ wide across the eyes.
For a limited time only we are offering Free USPS Express Mail Service to the US and Canada.
Please feel free to write us if you have any questions regarding any of the pieces in our collection or the Huichol that we work with. Peyote People has been recognized by the Huichol Traditional Government of San Andres Cohamiata for its work in the community and started a Fair Trade co-operative that promotes cultural authenticity by working with Huichol that actually live in the Sierra and are actively involved in the presvation of their cultures traditions.
