London-based Catherine Martin of Our Exquisite Corpse traveled to Mexico and discovered the beautiful beadwork of the Huichol. She worked with them to create these stunning beaded clay skulls at the time of ‘dia de los muertos’, the day of the dead.

The Hermes Music Foundation has given this rare spiritual gift to Bellas Artes Alliance to raise funds for producing events that promote, preserve and advance Latino music, art and culture. “Hermes has provided very few of these guitars. They have been prepared well in advance and only for very special people and artists such as Carlos Santana, Ricky Martin, and Deepak Chopra, among others.”
The guitar is being raffled by Latinitas on behalf of Bellas Artes Alliance. The drawing will be held on Saturday, March 17, 2011, at the Pan Americana Festival Held at Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center, 600 River Street, Austin, TX 78701.
