Huichol Indian art skull / The British Museum

Huichol Indian art skull / The British Museum

There are some ornaments that are truly unique. Bartered-for pottery from a remote mountain village in Bolivia or silks from a street seller in Vietnam. If this style of one of a kind, globetrotting trinkets is something that you or a loved one adore, then this Huichol Indian Art skull is the gift to buy this Christmas. It is handmade by Peyote people in Mexico, whose Huichol customs are shrouded in mystery. One thing that we do know is that this style of bright, colourful beading is one of their cultural traditions, and when applied to a (replica) skull, the art form really comes to life (excuse the pun).

Here at Schön! we think this would be the perfect talking point of a centre piece this Christmas. You can purchase the handmade Huichol Skull from The British Museum.
