Among the most interesting aesthetic manifestations of the current art scene are the stamen paintings of the Huichol mara'akate (shamans). These pieces take us through mythical paths and bring us closer to the beginning of time. But it's not just myths drawn in yarn. In the religion of the Huichols, the world exists thanks to the visionary experience of the initiates and their effort to obtain "the gift of seeing" or nierika. The vibrant aesthetics of Tatehuari's collection of stave boards is the work of various artists who venture into these ritual paths, and have left us in these pieces testimonies of their personal search.
