Helpful Information
  • The rugged mountains and remote villages of the Sierra de Nayarit north of Guadalajara are the homeland of roughly fifteen thousand Huichol people. These were among the last indigenous groups to succumb to Spanish influence, and their faith still is essentially pagan, revolving around several important agricultural deities. Deer is the most sacred of all animals, its blood a symbol of fertility. Corn is the source of all life, for it was Nacahue, mother of all gods, who gave corn to the first man for planting, and from this corn was born the first Huichol woman. Peyote is a means of communication with the Gods, and the consumption of peyote by the Huichol people is a deeply religious experience. The unity of these three elements - deer, corn, and peyote - represent the core of Huichol beliefs.
  • Huichol people express these feelings through their art, which is made not from the standpoint of decoration, but to give profound expression to deep spiritual beliefs. This makes traditional Huichol art, whether it be meticulous beadwork, yarn paintings, wooden masks, or striking embroidered and woven personal adornments, beautiful not only from its aesthetic standpoint but from the psychological as well.

I recently purchased several Huichol beaded egg shaped ornaments as Christmas gifts. They were all quite lovely but I liked some of the designs better than others. I really would have preferred to select the eggs individually as I wanted to fit the eggs to the recipient's tastes.Overall I was very pleased with the eggs as well as the bark painting I purchased. My order was well packed and arrived in a timely manner.
