Huichol Cow Skull

The Huichol Cow Skull series is a remembrance of the Wixárika ceremonial skulls, which are the result of traditional celebrations and a deep understanding of the flow of life and death.

The cattle that inhabit the Gran Nayar participate in the cosmology of the indigenous peoples by being part of the daily life of these communities. You don't just see them being born and growing in the fields and corrals. They are also seen dying and reproducing, in a cycle that never stops. All forms of life transcend through these cosmic faces, carriers of the power carried by their symbols.

The eagle, the blue deer, corn and peyote, the sun god Tau—among many other figures—are natural elements that inhabit the depths of the desert, where the visions taught by the Marakames occur.

The Wixáritari artists apply more than 33 thousand calibrated beads on each skull, alternating the bright colors with symbols of their choice. Although very similar to each other, none of these works is the same as another. Each one is unique and unrepeatable.
