It is in the mountains of Mexico that Huichol Art finds its origin. The ancestral tradition, the physical transcription of the images exhibited by the Huichol shamans, induced by the ingestion of Peyote (hikuri), their sacred cactus, allow them to cross the threshold of the unknown and therefore to approach the divine.

These works are made with glass or wire beads (stamens), and glued with campeche wax, its most traditional form, or with glue.
