Our exQuisite Corpse commissions the Huichol people of Western Mexico to create these awesome beaded works of art. Huichol artisans painstakingly cover human and animal skulls with intricate patters of tiny, colorful beads. Because each one-of-a-kind piece is beaded using wax, they need to be kept away from heat and the sun.
