Huichol Artist: Luciano Valdez

Saturday, May 4, 2013 11:00a to 6:00p
Gathering Tribes Albany, CA

Huichol art is colorful and meaningful. It is made by putting a thin layer of tree resin and beeswax over wood and then pressing seed beads or yarn in to the mixture. The "paintings" depict glimpses into the world of this traditional tribe. One might see symbols of animals, curanderos (healers), rain and more esoteric symbols of energy and glimpses into the spiritual dimensions. The artisans also make carved wooden animals that they press the mixture on to and then press in seed beads.
