Huichol Yarn Artwork

Huichol Yarn Artwork 12" x 12"
This "nierika", or traditional yarn painting, was made by the Huichol people of Mexico's remote Sierra Madre region. The Huichol are indigenous people who live in mountainous areas quite removed from modern society. Each work of art is made by applying brightly colored yarn to a board, using natural tree resin and beeswax as glue, and features patterns of plants and animal spirits rich in symbolism. The spiritual works are a vital part of Huichol rituals and traditions, each vibrant scene illustrating the stories, myths, and visions of the people.
