Colorful Beaded Skulls by Our Exquisite Corpse

Art comes in all shapes and sizes, including human skulls. Our Exquisite Corpse teamed up with the Huichol people of Western Mexico to create these beaded skulls.

The Huichols believe in the power of the Sun God, ancestral spirits and four principal deities – Deer, Corn, Peyote and the Eagle. They live in the Sierra Madre Mountains and have a long history in creating beaded art.

Our Exquisite Corpse has commissioned individual pieces from the most gifted artists. While most of the pieces are traditional, others are interpretations of contemporary designs provided by the designers.

These unique beaded skulls are not only part of a limited collection, but remain a treasured piece of Huichol culture. Each one of a kind Huichol skull is handed beaded using wax on a resin base and should be kept away from heat and the sun. Each skull is packaged in a bespoke padded box that is super shipping and freight friendly.

Prices start at GBP 489.
