Known to the Huichol as jikuri. In Huichol mythology, peyote gives the sacred jaguar ability to see and communicate with their gods. They carve the heads from copalillo wood from the sierra. The Huichol have a long history of beading, making the beads from clay, shells, corals, seeds and more and using them to make jewelry and to decorate bowls and other items. The hand-carved jaguar heads are usually covered with beeswax and pine pitch, then colorfully beaded in tribal motifs, while some are decorated with yarn, by artists of the Native American Huichol of Mexico.

Here is the chance to own the primary hand-carved jaguar head without the beads or yarn. And at a low starting price...compare the price to the beaded and decorated carvings. Yet, here, they owner can enjoy the lovely nuances of the hand carved wood, as beautiful as the decorated pieces in its own right.

About 10 1/2" from the tip of the ear to the tip of the nose; 9 1/2" from the top rim of the back to the base of the chin; 7 5/8" from ear-tip to ear-tip.
