Primary type:
Projects & Spaces

Description

Each wooden skeleton is individually carved and brightly painted. The Day of the Dead is celebrated in Mexico each year around All Saints’ Day (1 November). Though associated with the dead the celebration is quite the reverse of morbid and is a period full of life, colour and festival. Painted skeletons are cheerful representations of death, most popular in urban areas such as Mexico City. The figures bear no malice and mockingly affirm the insignificance and nothingness of human life. Approx. 16cmH
