Sugar Skull I, Original Mixed Media Art
This sweet sugar skull is part of the Mexican tradition of Día de Muertos, or Day of the dead.
The art is colorful and happy-- its small size makes it easy to display on a shelf or any other spot in your home where you want some ethnic color.
The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. The celebration takes place on October 31, November 1 and November 2, in connection with All Souls' Day. Traditions connected with the holiday include building private altars called ofrendas, honoring the deceased using sugar skulls (like this one), marigolds, and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed, and visiting graves with these as gifts.
