The Huichol or Wixáritari are Native Americans, living in the Sierra Madre Occidental range in the Mexican states of Nayarit, Jalisco, Zacatecas, and Durango. The yarn paintings are mystical and deeply magical based on ritual arts they reflect the visions of the Huichol and the work is not only an aesthetic or commercial art form. The symbols in these paintings come from Huichol culture and its shamanistic traditions. The work on a base of bees wax and pine resin in which threads of multi coloured yarn are used.
Huichols retain the traditional beliefs and are resistant to change. It is with deep respect and honour that we are working with a traditional Huichol artist helping to support his family and community and to the survival of this ancient sacred culture.
