With wings spread protectively, Werika covers the forehead of a mysterious personage. Regarded by the Huichol as their divine mother, she also represents Our Lady of Guadalupe. One of her heads talks to God, while the other watches over the world. Taa Ta Ta, the sun and father appears on both cheeks. Scorpions scuttle down the chin and six-sided peyote blossoms are also present on this stunning beadwork mask by Higinio Hernández.

I am in love with the earrings made by Mr. Higinio Hernandez Carrillo! I was very saddened to learn recently however that land sacred to his people Wirikuta is being threated and was wondering what I could do to help this gifted artist and his beautiful people.
