Miniature Mexican beaded Volkswagens
for sale @ Kunsthalle Deutsche bank
Following the popularity of the world’s only Mexican beaded Volkswagen, namely “Vochol”, the Museum of Popular Arts’ Friends Association ( AAMAP) has made available miniature replicas which can be purchased at their stores in Mexico City. The miniature replicas, also known as “Vocholitos”, are a wonderful way to promote and recognize the unique artistic expressions of the Mexican Huichol popular tradition. Even the role of the women is represented through the Vochol - and the Vocholito. MexicoToday is raffling 4 Vocholitos - two in Germany and two in France - via its Facebook pages, so make sure to participate for a chance to win one of them if you are based in any of those two countries!
The “Vochol” has been touring around North America and Europe for people abroad to enjoy such a magnificent piece of art. Following its exhibition at the Smithsonian in Washington, DC in March and the Denver International Airport in June, the “Vochol” visited the Musée du Quai Branly in Paris in October, when it head to the Autostadt in Wolfsburg, Germany where it will be exhibited until the first week of January in 2013.
In an exclusive interview with MexicoToday, the then president of the Marie Therese de Arango AAMAP invited people from around the world to admire and visit one of the Vochol upcoming exhibitions. LINK Kunsthalle DB
