Yarn Painting- Interconnected circles
Excelente Castro Hernández
24” x 24”
The Huichol indigenous group remains one of the most intact primitive cultures in the Western Hemisphere. Their art, which began centuries ago, was originally tributes to the gods and now has become spectacular art, all derived from peyote visions, dreams, and ancient spiritual and mythological traditions. The artist presses one strand of yarn at a time onto a board covered with a mixture of beeswax and resin.
Artist Excelente Castro Hernandez created this dazzling and intriguing yarn painting entitled, “Eight Faces.”
