This work in yarn by the Carrillo brothers from San Luis Potosí shows water as an embodied by Tatei Haramara, the mother or the Sea according to the cosmology of the Huichol people. It is She who brings rain and gives birth to plants like maize, source of growth, or sacred peyote, which brings knowledge. Fire is the means by which ancestors and divine beings communicate. Earth is represented by the snake, while the eagle is the symbol of the Sun. However, the deer is the most sacred creature, as it is a source of wisdom.
