Huichol Artist/Shaman José Benitez Sanchez from Mythic Visions: Yarn Paintings of a Huichol Shaman courtesy of the University of Pennsylvania's Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology

Benitez was the subject of Mythic Visions: Yarn Paintings of a Huichol Shaman, the dazzling 2003 exhibit at the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology. The paintings reflect the visions of Huichol shamans - Huichol history and mythology and especially the peyote-inspired visions through which they believe they can communicate with the deities to heal themselves and their world.
