Carlos Bautista: Hypnotic Geometric Peyote Motif Huichol Beaded Bull Skull
$1,100.00 - Collector Price
An extraordinary larger than normal hand beaded bull skull with a wonderful crisp geometric pattern. You can stare at this all day long and makes for a very powerful wall piece. Each bead is meticulously placed in a thin layer of beeswax and resin creating a tapestry like effect. The use of sporadic metallic beads adds a pop too.Truly authentic Huichol (pronounced wē-ˈchōl) art can be hard to find today. Many artists have lost cultural connections migrating to big cities far from home. The art we represent supports artists who actually live in the sierra, helping them stay connected to their ceremonies and rituals that make up what it means to be Huichol. Carlos is an amazing artist who lives in San Andres Cohamiata the ancient ceremonial center deep in the Sierra Madre Mountains of Western Mexico. San Andrés Cohamiata is an autonomously governed Wixárika village located in Mezquitic, Jalisco. Carlos only comes to town once in a awhile but always brings wonderful pieces that reflect his commitment to his culture. This piece comes with free shipping in the continental United States.
