Evoke Yarn Painted Skull Collaboration
The Huichols of the Sierra Madres in Western Mexico believe that artistic expression is an offering to the Great Spirit, that each of their creations is made in the service of prayer. Yarn painting honors the spirit of their sacred endeavors, while incorporating other symbols, colors, and imagery found in Mexican art, craft, and lore. To yarn paint, the surface of the object is covered with beeswax that has been warmed and softened in the hands of the artisan/shaman. Then designs are rhythmically tapped into the surface of the wax with thread until the entire surface is covered. The rhythm becomes a meditation and that meditation lasts for up to three days while the wax hardens. Each skull is blessed and released at the end.
This Pamela Love skull is a loving creations guided by her, watched over by Evoke the Spirit, and carried out by the hands of our most skilled Huichol Artisans. We are so proud to bring this piece to you.
While the design is the same, our skulls are made from the bones of once living creatures, so every one is unique.
