Huichol Yarn Art - 12"x 12" Tablet - Fidencio Benitez Rivera


This piece is by Fidencio Benitez Rivera. It shows the shamans honoring their sacred spirit animals. Scorpions protect against evil and bad luck. Toads were trusted confidants to the shamans. The shamans used drums to communicate with the gods. This yarn painting is known to the Huichols as a neirika; a portal between the physical and spiritual worlds.

Yarn paintings consist of yarn pressed into wood coated with wax.

The Huichol are an indigenous people who mostly live in the mountainous areas of northern Jalisco and Nayarit in north central Mexico.
