Intricate Technicolor Skulls
The Huichol Beaded Skulls are Spooky Yet Sophisticated

Huichol beaded skulls are spooky, but ultimately beautiful with incredibly intricate and alluring designs. ‘Our exQuisite Corpse,’ who collaborates with the Huichol people of Western Mexico, handcrafts these colorful skulls.

Each skull is different, with varying use of colors and patterns. Despite their rather morbid canvas, the skulls have a bright and cheery appearance. Each skull is painstakingly hand-beaded with wax on resin—the creators warn buyers to keep these striking pieces out of the sun and away from heat.

The inspiration for these pieces comes from the Huichol people. As said on the company’s website, “The Huichols believe in the power of the Sun God, ancestral spirits and four principal deities—Deer, Corn, Peyote and the Eagle.”
