Huichol Yarn Paintings Four Coasters Set

The Mexican states of Nayarit and Jalisco are home to the Huichol Indians, whose pre-Hispanic culture survives in remote mountain villages deep in the Sierra Madre Occidental.  The Huichol live a life woven of magic and sacred mythology.  Their yarn paintings--created by covering wood with a mixture of beeswax and pine resin, then pressing in threads of brightly colored yarn--express reverence for and spiritual connection to the animals, crops and weather patterns that enable them to survive in the harsh landscapes they inhabit. 4" X 4"
