Catherine Martin has been working with the Huichol people, a Native American ethnic group in central Mexico, on a project that has truly blown me away. Martin creates beaded skulls with the group, who has a long and extensive history of expertise with beads and beaded items.

The skulls are adorned with gorgeous beaded patterns in a variety of colors and prints, and all have a very distinctive Native American feel. They will soon be available to purchase from LN-CC.com and would certainly make a great addition to your living room.

Catherine Martin may have created the ultimate conversation starter with these incredibly intricate pieces. Next time you have guests over, direct them to a beaded skull and watch their jaws drop in amazement. I guarantee these multi-colored skulls are much more socially acceptable than having a regular old skull sitting on your fireplace mantle. Stats for Multi-Colored Corpse Art Trending: Older & Warm
