Huichol Beaded-Art Surfboard
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.
