This beaded flower necklace and pouch was made by a Huichol artisan in Mexico. This necklace measures approx. 18 inches by 3 inches at the widest part.
Brings light and illumination to the world. Tayaupa, or Tao Jreeku, is Father Sun, master of the heavens, and his wife is the Eagle, mother of the sky and goddess of life.

The Moon represents the nighttime, the dark, the dead.
This necklace brings attention to the relationship between the two, sun and moon, light and dark, life and death.
