Vibrant Pair of Colorful Wool Huichol Thread Animals. The Huichol are known for fine yarn art as well as finely beaded figures. Some of the work was inspired by taking Peyote. They are the perfect little companions to a tabletop, bookshelf, or desk. Both have wool thread applied on their bodies in a pattern. One is a bird and the other I'm not sure what. The bird has a thread coming up on the top of its head. Otherwise, they are in excellent condition. I can't tell what's beneath the thread, but it feels somewhat hard and a little weighty- you could use these as paperweights.


Bird is 3.5" L x 1.75" W x 3" H
Other animal, we'll call him the lion, measures 3" W x 1.5" x 2.25" H
