ITEM#: 11841063

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

Product Features:
  • The personage wears a headdress with a glowing green peyote blossom, or jicuri
  • Mask's blue hair is the color of kawuyomaire, the sacred deer, which also appears in white on his cheeks
  • Jicuri mask is the centerpiece of Huichol ritualism, revered for its curative properties and its ability to enlighten those who partake of it
Story Behind the Art:

Hello! I'm Higinio Hernandez, and I was born in a Huichol indigenous community in the Jalisco mountains of Mexico.¿ Higinio Hernandez creates this beautiful mask of papier-mache and tiny chaquira beads. 'This mask has a kind of crown. This signifies that it is used by men; women use masks without a crown,' Hernandez explains.

Aided by his wife and guided by their imagination and feelings, Hernandez creates these vivid images with brilliant chaquira beads patiently placed one at a time. Beeswax is used instead of glue. His masks reveal the rich cosmology of the Huichol people and add color and life to any setting.

Since this exquisite mask is made with the traditional process of attaching the beads with campeche wax, do not expose this piece to direct heat or light, which may cause the wax to dry or soften and thus loosen the beads.

    The mask is gorgeous, and I love it. I've gotten several compliments on it. It's just that it's a little smaller than I was anticipating. I guess I really didn't pay very close attention to the dimensions before ordering. I was hoping for something a bit bigger, to go with my other masks. It's my own fault, I just didn't really pay attention to the dimensions...so just know it's on the smaller size before you buy. But it's still fantastic and very colorful!
