This decorative batea design features a traditional Wixaritari symbol while nodding to the 1968 Olympic Games poster – a design originally inspired by Huichol art. The eagle is known as Werika Wimari or Mother of the Sky. Eagles also play an important role as their feathers impart power to the village shaman. Each piece is handmade using yarn set in beeswax, lining the hand-carved wooden base - a perfect example of the extraordinary craftsmanship of the Wixárika people.
