HUICHOL SPIRIT YAAB BAG
Measures W 11.5" x H 10.5"
A design inspired by Vision of a Mystic World, a Huichol work made in embroidery beads on wood by artist shaman Santos Motoaopohua de la Torre Santiago, from the Zacatecan Museum Collection of the Government of the State of Zacatecas. The countless depictions of birds, deer, squirrels, plants, flowers, gourds, and others are part of a deep symbolism and represent the Huichol cosmogony and mythology. Two of the most important characters are the sky, the world of souls and ancestors, and the feathered sticks of "muvielis", the most important tool of the Marakame shaman, through which he can sing, heal, seek the dead, and commune with the gods.
