Description

This beaded flower necklace was made by a Huichol artisan in Mexico.  It comes with either dark green or white spots on the peyote button. You can specify which one you’d like in an email, but we can’t guarantee it will still be in stock! Both are equally powerful.

It measures 17 inches at its longest and 1.5 inches at its widest.

 

Fire  Considered a very valuable gift from the gods, fire is called Tai. Tai is believed to enable the Huichol to have visions. The fire god, Tatewari, is always honored at Huichol ceremonies, and receives many offerings such as corn meal, sacred water and much of the art that they make.

Flowers – Play a part in all Huichol ceremonies, and all flowers are considered sacred in healing rituals; the patient’s head is anointed with flowers. Shamans use them to prepare for the deer hunt and during harvest ceremonies to adorn the new corn. One flower that appears often is called Kiera, the tree of the wind. It is a hallucinogenic plant said to open the Huichols spirits to the highest level of enlightenment.

White: Cloud Spirits.

Red: The East, fire, masculinity.

Blue: The South, Pacific Ocean, water, rain, femininity.

Green: The Earth, the Heavens, healing, the heart, grandfather, growth.

Yellow: A special root from Wirikuta used for face paint in ceremonies.

Orange: “Wirikuta,” the sacred land where the Huichol believe life began and also where they gather peyote.
