Huichol Indian Tiny Bead Bali Mask
This is the beaded art of the Huichol Indians done with the tiniest bead available, size 14. The colors used with these tiny beads are very different than what you typically see with the regular size #11 bead. These pieces are considered to be some of the finest bead work done anywhere. Like pixels, the more dots per inch the sharper the image so the designs are very crisp and clear. The bead itself is much more expensive and it also requires almost twice the number of beads, so the prices for these pieces is going to be higher than the traditional art form.
This is such a peaceful looking mask because the carving was done in Bali, Indonesia. We specifically asked our Huichol artist not to bead the face so that the natural serenity would emanate from the mask and you can enjoy both the beauty of the bead work as well as the natural features of the mask.
