About Huichol: According to Cosmovision (the Meso-American explanation and understanding of the universe) of the Huichol people, the gods speak to men through colors. This is one of the few artistic processes that is invariably linked to a mystical sense - the spirit as a raw material of art and vice versa. Every piece from this group is inspired by visions experienced during a peyote ritual. Huichol products usually use wax as an adhesive for the thousands of beads that each work contains. We use a special glue instead of wax to make these works of art less fragile and heat resistant.
