Huichol beaded reptile
The rugged mountains and remote villages of the Sierra de Nayarit north of Guadalajara are the homeland of roughly ten to fourteen thousand Huichol Indians. These were among the last tribes to come under Spanish rule, and their religion still is essentially pagan, revolving around several important agricultural deities. Deer is the most sacred of all animals, its blood a symbol of fertility. Corn is the source of all life, for it was Nacahue, mother of all gods, who gave corn to the first man for planting, and from it was born the first Huichol woman. Peyote is a means of communication with the gods, and the consumption of peyote by the Huichol people is a deeply religious experience. The unity of these three elements - deer, corn, and peyote - is the absolute core of Huichol beliefs.
The Huichols express these feelings through their art, which is made not from the standpoint of decoration, but to give profound expression to deep spiritual beliefs. This makes traditional Huichol art, whether it be meticulous beadwork, yarn paintings, wooden masks, or striking embroidered and woven personal adornments, beautiful not only from its aesthetic standpoint but from the psychological as well.
They have preserved their traditional practices, spiritual beliefs, and their sacred art for centuries. They believe they are the caretakers of the Mother Earth. Their art has a distinctive style, representing their reverence and connection to the natural environment. The beaded eggs, gourd bowls, jaguar heads, masks, lizard and other animals are all sacred symbols and each represents a deep connection to the spiritual realm.
Early works were completed by hollowing and drying gourds, which were then decorate
d with bits of shell, seeds and stones to use as offering bowls to the gods. When glass beads were introduced by Spanish missionairies, the Huichol began beading other items which they used in religious ceremonies and as offerings, such as animal figures, jaguar heads, masks, and other items. Today, wood, ceramic or other materials covered in a combination of wild bees wax and pine pitch. Each bead is then meticulously hand placed into this pitch, thus minor variations are common and considered part of the artwork.
The various designs have the following meanings -
Deer: A messenger of the gods
Serpent/Snake: God of the ocean
Mountain Lion/Jaguar: Messenger of the God of fire
Wolf: Knowledge & wisdom
Eclipse/Sun & Moon together: Union between man & woman
Two headed eagle: Duality of the Gods
Peyote (both as flower/button and plant): The symbol of life, success
Eye of God: Protection for children
Scorpion: Protector of the peyote
Iguana/Lizards: Adviser of the future, eyes of spirits
Birds (other than eagle): Freedom
Corn/Maize: Health and prosperity
Turtle/tortoise: Assistant of the rain Goddesses
Candle: offering to God
Salamander: God of rain
Muwieri/Arrows: The most important tool of a Shaman
Keri: a Hallucinogen plant
People/person: usually a shaman or medicine man

Christmas Decorating Underway at the Enchanted Cottage
“It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…Everywhere you go…”
~ Lyrics by Meredith Willson, 1951
This enchanting Christmas scene diorama is filled with numerous one of kind handmade creations that would be needed to decorate
a Christmas tree and wrap presents, in addition to decorating
parts of the house.
I make my
dioramas one at a time… from start to finish. There is no assembly line in my
workshop. No elves either. For this reason, this is truly one-of a-kind. I keep no written “recipes” for the color or instructions for the items I create to put into/on my
dioramas. Items on this piece were created at the time I was working on it from materials at hand at that time.
Very attractive candle blossom ornaments in a rich blue color are used primarily to decorate Ceramic Christmas Trees but are also useful as decorations for Ceramic Wreaths and on other ceramic and plaster designs. This ornament is most often used on ceramic trees measuring 11" to 14" in height.

The approximate size for these ornaments is 1-1/8" overall and 3/4" at the widest measurement. The stem is approximately 1/2" long and 3/16" in diameter. The ornaments are packaged 90 pieces to a bag and this offer includes 4 bags for a total of 360 pcs.
