Large Huichol Beaded Lizard Wood Carving with Metallic Beads
$580.00 - Collector Price
This bead art was done with iridescent and metallic glass beads that are imported for the best artists to work with. Each bead is meticulously placed in a thin layer of beeswax creating a tapestry like effect. Truly authentic Huichol 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 still live in the Sierra Madre Occidental, helping them stay connected to their ceremonies and rituals that make up what it means to be Huichol. We try to get artist info whenever possible. This is unsigned as can be the case with much of Mexican folk art today. Nice standout carving and beadwork still.
