Some believers in the 2012 doomsday have used the term galactic alignment and a range of eschatological beliefs according to which transformative events will occur on 21 December 2012. Astronomical alignments and numerological formulae suggest a New Age, the beginning of a new era or even the end of the world...I choose the first interpretation. And as a lucky charm I shall keep Our Exquisite Corpse Skulls by Catherine Martin, in collaboration with the Huichol people of Western Mexico to create these beaded skulls. The Huichols believe in the power of the Sun God, ancestral spirits and four principal deities – Deer, Corn, Peyote and the Eagle. They live in the Sierra Madre Mountains and have a long history in creating beaded art. Our Exquisite Corpse has commissioned individual pieces from the most gifted artists. While most of the pieces are traditional, others are interpretations of contemporary designs provided by us. These unique beaded skulls are not only part of a limited collection, but remain a treasured piece of Huichol culture. Each one of a kind Huichol skull is handed beaded using wax on a resin base and should be kept away from heat and the sun.
Each skull is packaged in a bespoke padded box that is super shipping and freight friendly.
