Beaded lizard design on piece of cut-out board. The black lizard has a six-petal flower in various shades of blue and white on each foot. Down the length of its back is a wide stripe of alternating brown and red-brown, with green leaf-like protrusions on each side. It has brown and purple-blue diamond-shaped eyes, and purple-blue nose and mouth. There are other designs in light blue and light purple-blue on the body, with brown on the tail. There is a handwritten note on the wood base.
The Wixáritari are known to the larger world as the Huichol, however that is not the name they use to refer to themselves.
