Masterfully beaded by our artist from Nayarit, Mexico. This life size deer is an intricate piece of artwork and a symbol of exquisite skills and patience. Hand beaded on fiber glass base by the Huichol Indians. Tiny glass beads have been set individually into a blend of beeswax and pine resin in designs sacred to the Huichol Indians.
The Huichol Indians are proud indigenous people found in the Sierra Madre regions of Nayarit and Jalisco. They have no written language and communicate with the spirit world through symbols and rituals. Deer is regarded as a sacred animal with high perception.
