Resembling a flower with six petals, a bright jicuri or peyote bud, crowns these earrings. The centerpiece of Huichol ritualism, jicuri is revered for its curative properties and its ability to enlighten the one who partakes of it. The deer also figures prominently in Huichol cosmology, and a blue deer is considered their brother and guardian. A white deer takes pride of place in this colorful beadwork design. Red, orange, yellow and black bring a bold contrast. Huichol Cultural Center artisans craft the pair by hand with a cascade of long beaded fringe.
