Beautiful beaded necklace by a Huichol artisan of Mexico. The Huichol are famous for their beadwork. It is some of the finest and most artistic I have seen with a wonderful subtle color sense. This was purchased from the young Huichol woman that made it.
The deer and peyote are significant to the mythology and spiritual life of the Huichol people.
These earrings are an homage to corn! Mexicans call themselves the "children of corn," descendants of people whose religious pantheon included three corn gods. Cornstalks were common patterns in ancient Mexican art and persist today in popular art. Between the Guatemalan and U.S. borders grow at least 32 varieties of corn, each with various sub-varieties, developed in response to climate and soil differences.
Sterling silver. About 1.5 inches long. Approx 7 grams.
