Framed Yarn Painting
Utilizing sacred designs and patterns as seen in yarn painting and weaving, the Huichol create an array of art. Life is a constant object of prayer for the Huichol. All phases of their lives are prayer where they incorporate symbols of planting, harvesting, peyote in their art.
Ruiz was a pioneer of the Huichol early classic style. Large yarn paintings of his visions are mounted with beeswax on plywood. On the back of each painting are the artist’s words in Huichol, handwritten to describe the meaning of the vision.
