amulet of the earth

 My first step was to create a piece with the symbol of the Peyote hikuri or sacred cactus. 
 
It took me months to finish it.
 
The night I finished it, the blue deer kauyumari came into my dreams and said:
 
"Take a petal of this hikuri flower as a reminder of my heart"
 
In the Wixarika culture the peyote represents the Blue Deer, the one who shows you the way to the good living.
