our exquisite corpse


i can’t believe i just stumbled across these!  i am in awe.  Our ExQuisite Corpse  is a group that works directly with people in Mexico, to create these incredible works of art.   Catherine Martin collaborated with the Huichoi people of the Sierra Mountains to create these one-of-a-kind beaded skulls that incorporate Huichoi traditions.

each skull has its own unique and special story and each one is beaded differently than the next.

the Huichoi believe in the power of the Sun God and “the four principle deities – Deer, Corn, Peyote and the Eagle.” for generations, beading has been an integral part of their culture, so these beaded skulls are very important to them as well.   our Exquisite Corpse also started to bead animal skulls like giraffes and bulls, which are also equally amazing.

 they are available for purchase here, but many are already sold out.  when you look at them up close, i am just blown away by the incredible detailing. what patience! i would KILL to have one of these.
