This handmade creation is offered in partnership with NOVICA, in association with National Geographic.

Unfurling her majestic wings, Wierika the eagle is the centerpiece in this Huichol mask of vibrant colors. Higinio Hernandez handcrafts this vibrant mask, creating the images with tiny beads on a paper mache base.

  • Colors: Yellow, orange, blue, black
  • Decorative
  • Hang on wall
  • Dimensions: 14.3 inches high x 12.8 inches wide x 2.8 inches deep

Story Behind the Art:
'I was born in a Huichol indigenous community in the Mexican sierra,' Higinio Hernandez says. 'I have followed my family tradition of beaded artwork. I make my masks over paper-mache figures, and my wife and I place the beads one-by-one on an adhesive coating of beeswax. The designs are completely improvised and are inspired by our reflections and feelings at the moment that we're working.' Do not expose these pieces to direct heat or light, as it could soften the adhesive and loosen the beads.
