Huichol Blue Deer

130.00

This beautiful blue deer has been intricately carved out of wood and then beaded by hand by an indigenous Huichol artisan. 

The blue deer -the spirit guide Kauyumari, who leads the shamans on their visionary pathways and teaches them how to gain their special knowledge. One of the most commonly seen motifs, the deer, maxa, in Huichol arts, often appears in male and female pairs. Symbolizing the unity between men and women on their spiritual journey. Legends about the deer abound in Huichol culture. The deer mother is the guardian spirit, the important animal in Huichol shamanism. She holds tobacco gourds and corn plant, both of utmost importance for Huichol survival. The Huichols believe that deer give their lives willingly to those who hunt them in a sacred manner. After a deer hunt, the hunters have to perform purifying rituals for many days to insure that the animals are properly thanked for giving their lives to the benefit of the people.

The ears and antlers all come apart for easy transport and care. This is a beautiful work of art and totally unique. Made with so much love and deep symbology.
