Sculpted of papier mache, a plump little hen wears eagles on her wings. The two-headed eagle symbolizes Werika, worshiped by Huichols as their mother, the one who listens to their prayers and helps them when in need. One of her heads talks to God, while the other watches over the world. Tiny beads cover the voluptuous bird by Higinio Hernandez Carrillo, depicting a star and colorful peyote blossoms.
