HUICHOL SHAMAN HAND BEADED JAGUAR HEAD ~ PEYOTESKU: SHJH1.
Indigenous Huichol Shaman hand carved wooden jaguar head. This exquisite piece is intricately hand beaded with ‘peyote’ motifs in psychedelic colours. 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 peyote is the symbol representing the continuity and unity of life, and acquisition of shamanic powers, and is considered a gift from the gods to the people to enlighten their lives and bring them into the mystical realm. The beads are placed into position individually (by hand) using a pin and are attached using a combination of pine resin and beeswax.
Dimensions: 9cm(h) x 8.3cm(w) x 7.5cm(d)
