José Benítez Sánchez Original Yarn Painting 25 x 25" (1938-2009). Huichol Yarn Painting by the master himself.
Born in 1938, Jose was brought up by his maternal grandfather, who died at the age of 105, and his stepfather, Pascual Benítez. Both of them were mara’akate (shamans). They both left a strong impression on him. At 8 years of age his stepfather began decided to begin Jose's training as a shaman.
José Benítez came to be recognized as an undisputed master of original dramatic compositions. Many copied his style as best they could, a few achieving personal touches that kept their own work original. But Benítez remains unsurpassed in the abundance and inventiveness of his art over the long span of his evolving career.
