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.
