These extraordinary pieces are made by Huichol artisans from Mexico living in the Sierra Madre Occidental. All of the threaded symbols represent the culture and nature surrounding them.
These animals are not killed or mistreated by anyone who is part of this art, these are skulls found in the mountains by our artisans, whose means are not to promote animal cruelty in any way!
After the skull is found, beeswax is applied, covering the area where the beads will be laid. This curated job takes approximately 1 month to complete.
