Additional Information: KAWS-inspired sculpture from the ALTERATIONS is a collaboration between Rick Wolfryd and a group of Mexican Huichol artists. The project is a cultural commentary consisting of embellished or reconstructed versions of well-known pop art figures, clad in the intricate beadwork of the Huichol people of Mexico. Historically associated with religious significance, the Huichol beading practice has in time become more commercial. Lot is accompanied by the Certificate of Authenticity issued by Wolfryd Collection. Provenance: Artist.
