Art is a daily
part of the lives of the Wixaritari
and it takes many forms
such as weaving, embroidery, beadwork, votive offerings, chairs, basketry,
musical instruments and sculptures. Explore this website to see fine
examples of traditional crafts and the work of five extraordinary yarn
painters and some of their most provocative works.
The contemporary yarn painting has its origins in the nierika
like those in the above photograph.
