Details

A sunburst blazes on the forehead of an enigmatic personage. Considered the father of the Huichol people, the sun is accompanied by six-sided jicuri (peyote) buds on each cheek. Higinio Hernández creates a mesmerizing beadwork mask. Brother of the Huichol people, Kawuyomaire is a blue deer who travels the heavens as a guide and guardian. He appears on the crown, which indicates this mask should be worn only by men.
