The Vochol, art on wheels

One-of-a-kind in the world, this VW Beetle has been decorated by indigenous artisans from the Huichol communities in Jalisco and Nayarit with symbols and stories from their culture.

Two families spent 7 months working on the project and used more than 2,770,000 glass beads and 16 kilos of resin. The car known as the “Vochol”, a combination between Vocho, as the Mexicans popularly call the Beetle, and Huichol, is a truly spectacular masterpiece of Mexican art. After roaming the world, it returned to the Museo de Arte Popular in Mexico City a couple of weeks ago, who in part sponsored the stunning project.
