I saw these photos on both boingboing and Artdaily. You know how much I love Huichol art. This is cooler than cool. I wish I could see it in person. Amazing. Once again the Huichol amaze me with their talent and patience.
The text accompanying the photo on both sites is: PUEBLA.- People look at a 1990s Volkswagen Beetle named Vochol during an exhibition on Huichol culture at the Museum of Puebla, near Mexico City August 10, 2011. The name Vochol, was conceived from a combination of Vochoa popular term for Volkswagen Beetles in Mexico and Huichol, a Mexican indigenous group. The car was decorated by indigenous craftmen from the Huichol community living in the states of Nayarit and Jalisco, using traditional beads and fabric. According to local media, the work will be auctioned after its exhibition in Paris and Berlin next year, with proceeds going to the Huichols. REUTERS/Imelda Mediana.
