The Huichol Indians live in the western Sierra Madre mountains of Nayarit and Jalisco, Mexico. In Huichol art the gods and spirits are represented by sacred symbols such as the deer, the eagle, the snake, and the peyote. The unique visions of their communication with their gods come alive in their yarn paintings. These are made by spreading a blend of beeswax and pine resin on a wood frame and then pressing down fine stands of yarn to relate their vision. Also using this same technique the Huichols press small glass beads onto wood figures.
On the back side of each yarn painting is written the story of the vision. All pieces have been translated and come with additional information about the Huichol culture and symbolism in their artwork. We work directly with several Huichol artists to help preserve this unique culture. These yarn paintings are truly works of art.
Our 4ft.x4ft. yarn paintings are specially packed in a wood crate and shipped Fed-Ex.
