This beautiful prayer bowl is created using the bottom of a gourd which forms a bowl.
Prayer bowls have traditionally been used in Huichol ceremonies and hold offerings such as peyote, ceremonial arrows, and “muvieris” or prayer sticks. Here they hold the artist’s visions in beads. The sacred symbol in this piece is corn which is thought of as a Mother Corn who provides sustenance. This wonderful bowl will not disappoint!
Seen in real life, this bowl is imbued with the Huichol connection to the spirit world. It is 2 inches in diameter and 3/4 inch deep. Do not place this art in hot direct sunlight. This may soften the beeswax. Otherwise, with gently handling, this art will stay in perfect shape.
