Nayarit, Mexico, c. 1990

Provenance:  Current owner purchased c.1994 from Mark Lang, the collector who provided the 31 José Benitez Sanchez paintings now in the collection of the University of Pennsylvania Museum, documented in the book Visions of a Huichol Shaman by Dr. Peter Furst (2003).  It was purchased from artist in approximately 1990.

The text written on the back of the painting has been translated as follows: 
 "In this painting we can see the symbol when the Gods have communication during the night.  To have knowledge of what they say and this is the way we know the word of the Gods.  If you go to Real de Catorce, San Luis Potosi, where you can find the sacred Gods."
