Jaguar head lined with chaquira
The Huichol artisans make very high quality and colorful pieces that are of complex elaboration, such as the figures lined with chaquira that surprise the imagination and are part of the magical world of the Wixarika culture. The hands of the artisans transform the material by covering it with beads with beautiful and brilliant motifs. The result is a true explosion of color, full of sacred symbols of their culture.
The Huichol culture is guided by pre-Columbian shamanic traditions linked to ceremonies performed in their historical past. The chaquira lined figures are a unique decorative piece of its kind.
