The Deer is the spirit guide Kauyumari, who leads the shamans on their visionary pathways and teaches them how to gain their special knowledge often appearing in male and female pairs, symbolizing the unity between men and women on their spiritual journey. Jaguars (Mayetse) are guardians of the sacred vows taken by shamans during periods of initiation and are given power to devour the spirits of those who fail.The beads are placed into position individually (by hand) using a pin and are attached using a combination of pine resin and beeswax.
