Description
 
Huichol artisan Jesus Jimenez hand creates this multicolored beaded jaguar mask. For the Huichols, the jaguar represents the messenger of the god of fire, Tatewari, who is the guardian of the sacred vows taken by newly initiated shamans. The forehead is emblazoned with the double eagle which symbolizes the duality of the gods. Peyote flowers decorate the cheeks. Peyote is ingested during special ceremonies to make contact with the Huichol gods.

The base is made of copal wood, and the beads are hand pressed into the wood using bees wax.

Artists name on the back.

5" H x 5 D" x 5" W
