Santos Bautista: Huichol Metallic Beaded Resin Cast Saber Tooth Tiger Skull
$580.00 - Collector Price
An extraordinary hand beaded cast resin copy of an actual saber tooth tiger skull featuring a wonderful array of traditional Huichol (pronounced wē-ˈchōl) designs. The metallic beads really make this one pop. Each bead is meticulously placed in a thin layer of resin/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 actually live in the sierra, helping them stay connected to their ceremonies and rituals that make up what it means to be Huichol.
Size (long x wide x tall): 14 x 8 x 8 in
