It was a surprise to see a surfboard at the Feria Maestros del Arte and it pulled me into a conversation with Cilau Valadéz Navarro, the Huichol artist who began to tell me the story about the symbolism on the surfboard.
The next day, he agreed to tell the story on video. It's an incredible piece of art: a full-sized surfboard covered with thousands of tiny beads, each one embedded by hand into a base of beeswax.
Here's the link of Cilau telling the story: Huichol Beaded-art surfboard.

Guadalupe loves clay. At one point in the video she proves her passion by flinging herself face first into a pile of clay.
Don't miss this beautiful and inspiring video done by two incredibly talented young people: Alma Silva and Helios Nieto, who spent a month with Guadalupe and captured her heart and the brilliance of this folk art. Thank you Alma and Helios for permission to share this touching video.
