The Indigenous Beetle :)

It’s called the Vochol, a cross between the word ‘vocho’, slang in Mexico for the popular Beetle, and the word ‘Huichol’, the isolated indigenous natives of west central Mexico who spent seven months making it. This beautiful 1990 Volkswagen Beetle was hand decorated by two Huichol families using more than 2 million glass beads and bee’s wax to cover every inch of the car’s exterior and the dashboard. The finished artwork represents various landscapes of Mexico, religious messages and other symbols. The proud creation, an expression of cross culture in Mexico, is now traveling the world.
