Sugar Skull Ornaments

We love the painted calaveras and other folk art associated with the Day of the Dead, especially José Posada’s political cartoons from the Mexican Revolution. The Day of the Dead is a fascinatingly syncretic amalgamation of Spanish Catholic dogma (All Soul’s Day) as interpreted through the paradigm of indigenous Aztec art and culture. Mexican Catholicism is probably our favorite flavor of Catholicism just because of the color palette.Sugar Skull OrnamentsSugar Skulls
