    • Dia De Los Muertos is the Mexican Day of The Dead. The main symbol is the skeleton, namely the skull, in rememberance of a past loved one. It has become a very artistic festival and the Calavera is the skull painted with beautiful decoration.

    • Thanks so much Jess!! Ur wondeful. I started with a skull then developed around it giving the idea that the typical skull is just the “white” outside and the black one mostly sees in the eyes, mouth, and other features. With this onem the darkness is being expelled and light of goodness is taking over. It kind of goes along with the whole whole sequence of Halloween/All Saints, how the spirits come out to haunt in the darkness, but are expelled back to their graves with the light of dawn.
