Sugar Skulls Art

Many cultures celebrate their ancestors spiritual journey, but  to me the most eye catching celebration ...






 ...is the Mexican holiday day of the dead. 
In this celebration family and friends gather to honor the memory of their departed love ones.
A day to remember their  friends and family members who have died, in this tradition, altars are created in honor of the deceased; This altars are filled with their favorite foods and beverages and  decorated with marigolds, sugar skulls which represents the departed soul. Sugar skulls are placed on their graves as well as offerings .

Can you believe that many sugar skull bakers, make these four to six months ahead , so they have enough to sell at the day celebration. Amazing isn't it!



To honor the ancestor who have gave the inheritance  of knowledge; That I use today in my mixed media creations  of  many art and crafts. In gratitude for all that; they inspired me and in their memory painted several skull canvas art in their favorite colors.
