The family car is usually a place of family bonding with road trips, Sunday morning car rides and the general hustle and bustle of errands. But for these two families in Central Mexico, the car itself is a bonding experience.
They call it the Vochol, a cross between the Spanish word for Beetle ("voch") and "Huichol", from the indigenous people of Mexico known for their mosaics.
The 1990 VW "Vochol" has over two million glass beads attached with beeswax to the surface of the exterior.
All of this was done by hand.
The car represents the landscape, flowers and religious iconography of their Mexican homeland.
The Vochol travels the world, teaching about Mexico's culture and art.
