Huichol art on wheels

Jul 09, 2013
Mudanzas Gou has been appointed to perform all the logistics and transportation services for the Vochol.

This is a classic VW Beetle Automobile (called a Vocho in Mexico) that has been carefully decorated with diminutive ceramic-glass pieces called chaquira all over on it, creating beautiful colours and decorations. The VW has now become a unique and high-value piece of art worth over USD $500,000.00, and has been exhibited in several important museums in Mexico and USA.  

The vehicle is to be exhibited at the Quai Brandly Museum in Paris, the Autostadt  Show and the Deutsche Bank Headquarters Gallery in Germany, and finally at the Museum of Fine Arts in Belgium.  Mudanzas Gou appointed Sterling International as its agent in France and Germany; and Transworld in Belgium. After its European tour the car will return to the USA  to continue its exhibition at Christies, N.Y. 

The Huichol is an ancient culture in western Mexico.  The artists have turned this particular Vocho into a Vochol, a beautiful and now famous piece of art in the Huichol style.
