Huichel Eclipse of the Sun


This design was inspired by a piece of Huichel art. The Huichel Indians of Mexico cover objects with beads imbedded in a wax mixture. Their use of brilliant colors really speaks to me. In Mexico among the Huichol Indians of the Sierra Madre the Sun deity Tayaupa is very powerful. While he cannot be controlled by man as fire can, he must be respected because he lights and warms the earth by day. Some examples of Huichol artwork depicts Tayaupa being eclipsed by the moon.
