Eagle Devouring Serpent - Tierra Huichol
$ 4,590.00 MXN
In pre-Hispanic mythology, it was said that the Aztecs received a message from the God of the Sun and War, Huitzilopochtli (blue hummingbird) to leave Aztlan, the place where they lived until then because it was necessary to find new land. In that place, they would find riches and they would gain power over other peoples. Huitzilopochtli sentenced that that promised land would be where an eagle was found on top of a cactus, devouring a snake. The Huichol goddess, Mother Eagle, Mother of the Sky and Queen of the Heavens, is embodied by the eagle, or Wealika. Wixarika Artisans beaded and decorate a handmade paper mache sculpture to symbolize that historic moment. Materials: Paper Maché, Beeswax & Glass Beads (Chaquira) Size: 20cm x 40cm x 36cm Receive a certificate signed by the Artist
