    £135.00 Members' price *


    These exquisite beaded skulls are handmade by Peyote People in Mexico, and reflect the finer examples of Huichol Indian art.

    Deep in the Sierra Madre Mountains of Western Mexico live the Huichol Indians. Very little is known about the exact origins of the Huichol, but today they are clinging to a set of customs and beliefs that make them one of the best preserved Pre-Columbian tribes in the Western Hemisphere. Bright and colourful bead art is one of their cultural traditions. These exquisite skulls are handmade by the Huichol Indian tribes and display the charms of this art form.

    Peyote People is a fair trade co-operative based in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - the home of the Huichol Indians. It is recognised for its commitment to promoting Huichol Indian artwork and preserving their customs and traditions.

    A one-of-a-kind adornment for the home. Each skull is unique and reflects hours of skilled craftsmanship. The designs vary and will differ from the illustration.

    This skull evokes the skull tradition of the Mexican Day of the Dead festival.

    The skull measures 14cm x 9cm and has a moveable jaw. Also available in a larger version (20cm x 13cm).
