Blogging from A-Z • V

V is for Video....and Volkswagon...and Volcho!

Seriously - this is totally worth a look whether you are a beader or not!

"The Vochol® is a Volkswagen Beetle that has been covered with the traditional beadwork from the Huichol (Waxaritari), an indigenous group from Mexico. It is covered in 2,277,000 glass beads applied by 8 artisans from two Huichol families over 9,000 hours and will be on display at DIA’s main terminal from May 21st to August 31, 2012."


I seriously hope this car's tour will find its way near me!  I'm adding it to my Google alerts now!

  1. Huichol art is amazing isn't it? I bought the wax a few years ago but I haven't made anything with it yet.
