yarnpainting

The technique is carried out in northwestern Mexico by the Wixarika

 

For the people everything that exists is sacred. Their religious beliefs consist in the Deer, the Corn and the Sacred Cactus.

 

Yarnpainting is a prayer, and the technique, consists of using a very thin layer of wax on the object we are going to "paint", followed by pressing the coloured yarn on the waxed surface creating the patterns of your vision.👁

 

 Each piece can take hours, weeks or even months to complete, depending on the size and detail you give it.

 

Yarnpainting is a key to our inner world, a way of praying and telling a story.
