Huichol: Large Sea Turtle

Stunning large sea turtle handcrafted by Huichol artists in the Mexican state of Jalisco. 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 the wax areas that have been prepared for beading.   This lovely figure has a beautiful coloring of lavender hues that complement the colorful shell of the turtle.  The shell features eagles, scorpions, snakes, deer, corn and peyote flowers.
