The Huicholes of the Nayar mountains communicate the legends and myths of their culture through stunning works of art. Their yarn paintings are the most expressive in their story telling. With their bold graphics and most intricate use of colorful thread, each piece is uniquely different than any other. The artist was working in a shady part of a cobble stone street in Tlaquepaque. Her two sons sitting at either side of her passing her beads or threads. She said Sundays were her favorite days, she loved spending the time talking to people like me interested in her life's work. It took her four hours each way to make it to town from her mountain top home, to work. She told me the story of this particular yarn painting and I promised I would tell it to the next: The blue deer symbolizes the origin of man. Huichol mythology says when the deer learned to walk on two legs, his antlers fell off and he became man, unable to return to nature and his mystical world. The deer often represents vital energy, a rebirth.
