Height: 6 Inches; Width: 2.5 Inches; Depth: 8.5 Inches. Welcome to Peyote People, my name is Kevin and together with my wife Beatriz we run a small gallery in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico that works directly with the Huichol Indians that live in San Andres Cohamiata, Jalisco. Over the last 10years we have developed very close relationships with a number of Huichol families. We believe that the artist is just as valuble as the art; every piece that we sell is marked with the artist name and has a stamp that states their tribal affiliation which adheres to the 1991 Indian Arts and Crafts Act. A simple google search will bring up more web sites than there are Huichol!!
The true art however is very difficult to find. It does not come from Huichol that live in the city, but rather those who actually live in the sierra, those who are involved in doing the ceremonies and rituals that make up what it means to be Huichol. Florencio Lopez the son of Don Jacinto Lopez Ramirez, one of the founding fathers of the bead art. Florencio's family, as one of the pioneering families of the art, has been doing the bead art for over 30 years, Now her daughter, Morelia Lopez, revolutionizes Huichol art, achieve the colors combine to achieve explosions visualize them.
