These beaded flower earrings were made by a Huichol artisan in Mexico. The earrings measure about 3.5 inches long and 1.0 inches wide.

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.

THE SIGNIFICANCE OF COLORS:

RED – The East, fire, masculinity.

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.
