Product Details

The largest piece I've done so far. Unepoxied, this beauty is mesmerizing with its bright colors, and her story is equally as hypnotic.

The Mexican holiday of Día de los Muertos, or the Day of the Dead, is celebrated on the 1st and 2nd November in connection with the Catholic holidays of All Saint’s Day and All Hollow’s Day.

While the holiday of Día de los Muertos is rooted in the Catholic holidays of All Saint’s Day and All Hollow’s Day, the indigenous people of central and southern Mexico have adapted these traditions to include ancient Aztec beliefs of honoring their deceased loved ones. The holidays celebrate the belief that the gates of heaven are opened on these dates to allow deceased loved ones to return and spend the day with their families. At midnight on October 31, and the spirits of all deceased children, known as angelitos, are allowed to reunite with their families for 24 hours. On this same day, small skulls are often placed on the offrenda (altar), representing the children who have passed. The following day, November 2, larger and more detailed skulls replace the smaller ones, representing the deceased adults who now come down to enjoy the festivities that are prepared for them.
