    Artist's manuscript:
    "In this painting we see the birth of the wind tree that the gods offered it some feathers so that it would be protected by that offering. We see that around it they offered other offerings such as peyotes and arrows and cornfields, as well as the deer They perform a dance and with songs and prayers they receive it; just as it is also protected by the sacred fire and we see that the sun god sends it some magical rays so that it offers them; just as we see that a path of offerings that are the feathers and the peyotes, that path leads to the wind tree to the sun god so that it can receive his blessing and in the four corners we see the four sacred hummingbirds."

    At Marakame we work with five Wixaritari -Huichol- artists who create large-format pieces with the ancient technique of "Painted with Yarn", we decided to commission the artists with works of up to 6 m2 in surface area -these being the largest in the world in their style and technique-, from the old style to more realistic representations, according to the pictorial style of each creator, in any case addressing the narrative of their traditional custom through the most representative symbology of their worldview.
