Marra rrurabe means "Deer star." In a profuse display of symbolic patterns, this beaded mask on a papier maché backing by Higinio Hernandez contains three of the most important elements of the huichol culture: corn, deer and peyote. Every detail reflects a deep relation with the cosmic elements in geometric intricacy. The rich iconography of the Huichols, who are recognized as a profoundly mystical people, signals that every object possesses immeasurable degrees of spiritual meaning.

The deer symbolizes Kayumahli, the spirit who is the guide, teacher, and channel of knowledge for the Shamans. The deer hunt, capture and slaying, is a very ritualized ceremony. As a guardian spirit, marra is one of the animals of primary importance in the shamanism of the Huichol.

The Huichol art is a literal physical translation of imagery seen during their expanded state of awareness, induced by their sacred cactus. This art is a tangible manifestation of their experience in the realm of the gods for each of us to see, touch, and commune with, becoming vehicles for our own contemplation and transformation.
