“Sikuli Shawl by Vanessa ewing”
“Sikuli,” the Huichol word which means “the power to see and understand things unknown.”

We all dream in our sleep. Some of us remember those dreams, some of us don’t. This shawl was a conceptual idea that came to me in a dream. Like an open window to another world; a motif that contained a circle in a square.
