Absolutely spectacular angular panther sculpture created by the talented Huichol people of Jalisco and Nayarit. The sculpture has such a sense of movement, alertness and captures perfectly the stance of the prowling feline. The figure has a contemporary form, with sharp angles that create the body of this panther. The beaded decoration in beautiful pearl grays, black, white and has details in gold.
The Wixárika or Huichol people are the masters of beaded art in Mexico and arguably the world. Beads are painstakingly placed one by one over wax or glue areas that have been prepared for beading. A one of a kind museum quality piece!
