Our Exquisite Corpse   Huichol Beaded Skulls inspiration

‘Our Exquisite Corpse’ teamed up with the Huichol people of western Mexico to produce these intricately beaded skulls. Each of the heavily beaded pieces has been decorated by various artists from the Huichol, using traditional symbols and designs arranged within the patterns, making every skull a completely unique piece of art. The Huichols are decendants of the Aztecs and believe in the Sun God, ancestral spirits and four principal deities – Deer, Corn, Coyote and Eagle. The Sierra Madre Mountains are their home and the Huichol have a long history of creating beaded art, which is a treasured part of their culture. Each skull is cast from resin and hand beaded onto a layer of wax. See more from ‘Our exquisite Corpse’ on their website.
