Bead Day. Beaded car

Saturday, March 21, 2015

This is a Vochol, a cross between the Spanish word for the Beetle car ("voch") and the word "Huichol." It took seven months to create this car's look. This 1990 Volkswagen Beetle received over 2 million glass beads along with beeswax to cover every inch of the car’s exterior and the dashboard. This was all done by hand. The resulting car represents various aspects of its Mexican homeland, including landscapes, religion, and flowers.
