Keepers of the Arts - Masks Huichol Gifts
It exceeded my expectations. The beadwork is incredible. The eyes are cut out yet they are so deep that they look black when hanging on the wall. Deep into the darkness peering, long I stood there. Wondering...
Present for my husband, and he was very impressed with the talent and artistry. I love the colors and designs.
I have a few other Huichol items and the one thing that struck me about the mask is how sturdy it is. The mask that the beads are mounted on is very hard and not a single bead fell out when removing the packaging or hanging the mask. My other Huichol sculptures are so delicate that they cannot be handled at all without losing a bead or two.
"I hope that you enjoy my works as much as I enjoy making them. I hope that through them you will get a better understanding of the magic and meaning of the Huichol culture."
