Peyote Cactus Art


At the Velez Gallery in Colorado Springs.

Point to some brightly colored baskets. “Those are made by the Huichol Indians,” he said, referring to the Western Mexican culture. “The beads are held on with beeswax. There are probably 800 beads, maybe more,” he said, pointing to a basket – perhaps 2 inches across – adorned with an image of a peyote cactus. 

I’d buy that. But then I recently bought a purple gorilla suit filled with gold coins.
