The "Eye of God" (Si'Kuli) is the an important religious symbol in the Wixárika culture. It's a symbol of power and serves to see and understand the unknown. It's mulitcolored, diamond-shaped, and makes reference to the five cardinal points - the five directions of the universe. It's an offering made to the gods to ask for healthy child development and growth.

Based on the Eye of God, the designer Oriana Rodriguez, together with the artisan Kupaima, created a handmade bag made 100% of leather and Czechoslovakian beads, one of the materials most used by the Huichol since the nineteenth century. Each bag uses 55,000 beads and takes more than 100 hours of work to make. Each color is chosen strategically to create harmony and contrast, characteristics of the Huichol work. With your purchase, you contribute to making this beautiful Wixárika tradition thrive.
