Burger #123 – Yarn Drawing

Gosh “yarn” it…

Here is my attempt at a burger yarn drawing.  The Huichol people, from the mid-western region of Mexico, are the most famous for this yarn art practice.  They are able to create really intricate and beautiful pieces.

From Wikipedia:

For the Huichol however, yarn painting is not only an aesthetic or commercial artform. The symbols in these paintings are sprung out of Huichol culture and its shamanistic traditions. From the small beaded eggs and jaguar heads to the modern detailed yarn paintings in psychedelic colors, each is related to a part of Huichol tradition and belief.

It’s great that all these interesting art techniques are developed from various cultures.  We get to learn a lot about them, as these forms are shared all throughout the world.
