Cada año familias wirrarikas hacen un largo peregrinaje para realizar rituales con el peyote, su planta sagrada. Esta cultura huichola se mantiene con el increíble arte que genera a través de las visiones logradas en estos rituales.

Nosotros vivimos en este desierto, de amplios horizontes, cactáceas, y un impresionante cementerio de dinosaurios

De aquí nace nuestro proyecto ïchiro, sacred beings, que busca provocar una reflexión sobre el tiempo, la vida, las culturas antiguas que siguen sobreviviendo y los seres que un día estuvieron donde estamos y hoy están extintos.

Ayúdanos a materializar y ser parte de este portal a la conciencia, para presentarlo en Burning Man, uno de los escenarios de arte más importantes de nuestros días.

Los recursos que nos faltan son para invitar a más artesanos huicholes a completar estos gigantes de más de 11mts y poder transportarlos desde el desierto mexicano hasta el desierto de Nevada.

Te necesitamos para que el dinosaurio huichol llegue a Burning Man.

Our team consists of sculptor Marianela Fuentes, archaeologist Arturo Gonzales and artist Sarahi Carrillo. 

Our proposal was selected to be one of the main sculptures in Burning Man 2018. We are looking for funding to help realize the creation of these beaded dinosaurs in Black Rock City. 

Arturo is the director of the Museum of the Desert in Coahuila, Mexico http://museodeldesierto.org/, the first place they discovered the fossils of the Velafrons. We are very much in love with the project because it involves a beautiful part of our culture, the Wixarikas (Huichols) , with the passage of time and science. We want "Ichiro, Sacred Beings" to reach many eyes, minds and hearts in the world.

Risks and challenges

The total cost of this sculpture is around $ 830,000 MXN, already counting on transport in containers | Mexico / Nevada | (Nobody is making a profit on this project, just the Huichols who do their work with the beads)

Being one of the projects approved by Burning Man, it will support us with $ 460,000 MXN. for that reason, it is a fact that we are going to make the sculpture, even taking loans in the banks between Arturo, Marianella and myself (which clearly we want that to be the last option).

We are convinced that with the help of this platform the scope of our project will be possible. Therefore, we hope to achieve what we lack, which is around $ 300,000 MXN with the support of the Kickstarter community :)
