Details

Mexico's Ana Maria González honors Huichol art with the design of this jewelry box. The multicolored composition captures the essence of the Huichol cosmogony including Werika the eagle hailed as the Huichol mother, and the deer, regarded as their brother. He is the intermediary between humans and deities. González masters decoupage techniques on a pinewood jewelry box featuring a floating deck that is perfect for earrings.

"This is the cutest Day of the Dead box"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The box has cute decoupage pictures of Catrina and others celebrating the traditional and festive Day of the Dead in Mexico. Lots of skeletons and scull masks, and all very colorful. Very fun and well made and I will probably leave it out on a shelf all year.

Best Uses

  • Celebrating the Day of the Dead!

"Got this as a gift for a Date Night Idea box"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I absolutely LOVE this box. It fit 52 envelopes with date night ideas and a little cash in each envelope perfectly. Construction is beautiful and I cant wait to give it to the couple. The box I received is much darker than the photo shows but the design is identical. I would have preferred the lighter decoration but I still love this box!

I really love this box! It has almost an impressionistic painting effect showing Huichol Women in their colorful dresses. Very pretty and interesting. I love Mrs. Gonzalezs boxes!

"This box shows Ms. Gonzalez has an interest in the Huichol culture in her country.."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Her website shows she has made many boxes which highlight the Huichol culture and its religious beliefs and gods. I really love the mandala and other pictures on this box; it is very interesting and colorful. I also learned something about this culture from reading the descriptions of her art work. I found it all very interesting and I want to thank her for making such lovely art while educating me. I will purchase another of her Huichol art works soon!

Best Uses

  • As a beautiful box and also a cultural piece
