These are truly unusual examples of art pieces that showcase the skills and the traditional art form from Western Mexico. Our Exquisite Corpse Skulls by Catherine Martin might not suit the taste of everyone as human skull may not be accepted by everyone as artistic however skillfully beaded. These corpse skulls have been transformed into art pieces in collaboration with Huichoi people of the Sierra Madre Mountains in Western Mexico.

The aim of this passion project it to bring to the elite circle of art lovers the traditional craftsmanship of Huichoi artisans who have a beautiful way of incorporating religious and symbolic motifs in their art work.
