Huichol Trabajando. Huichol art broadly groups the most traditional & most recent innovations in the folk art & handcrafts produced by the Huichol people, who live in the states of Jalisco & Nayarit in Mexico. The unifying factor of the work is the colorful decoration using symbols & designs which date back centuries.
In Huichol art work, the Huichol Indians express their deepest religious feelings and beliefs from a life time of participation in ceremonies and rituals. Huichol art also reflects shamanic tradition documenting age-old worship and wisdom surviving into modern times. The Huichol Indians live in the isolated region of the western Sierra Madre Mountains in Mexico.
