This skull, inspired by Indians of Northern Mexico, is a true gem. It is made of ceramic, beeswax and cotton yarn. The artisanal process is kind a of spiritual experience: to yarn paint, the artisan covers the surface of the object with beeswax that has been warmed and softened in his hands. Then he taps the designs rhythmically into the surface of the wax with thread until the entire surface is covered. The rhythm becomes a meditation and that meditation lasts for up to three days. The wax hardens as the time passes. At the end, when the skull is finished, the piece is blessed and released.
