This decorative batea design uses traditional Wixaritari iconography while nodding to the 1968 Olympic Games poster – a design originally inspired by Huichol art. In this culture, serpents are sacred messengers - they take messages up to the gods and return in the form of rain. 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.
