Cool in the deep blue darkness, stars send a message from the heavens. In Huichol belief, it is the stars that watch over the sun at night while he is asleep, and rrurabe, are guardian stars that accompany the shaman. The cover a handsome skull by Higinio Hernandez Carrillo. Large on each cheek, peyote is the medium through which celebrants may see and communicate with the gods. The artisan creates these geometric images with tiny seed beads, patiently applying each one and using a needle to place them with precision.

Do not expose this piece to direct heat or light, as it could soften the wax adhesive and thus loosen the beads.
