A bit scary pictures but very well captured!

I have always been fascinated with those who use the human skeleton or parts of it for some purpose. I do recall that in 1952, in Tucson, Arizona, the Spanish and Mexicans had painted skulls in or around the art studios we visited. I think you picture captures that very well.

But who is this blonde, I wonder?
Now I am afraid, what Mexican food will do to you.
Take care :))

Are those the effects of Montezuma's Revenge? ;-)

Very whimsical!

Ame said...

Day of the Dead? LOL!

Great couple of snaps Kate!

Kate said...

Ame, You are absolutely correct; these images are everywhere in Mexico and there are so many objects that I'd like to buy! I also wish that I could be somewhere in Mexico in November to observe this day as it is celebrated here.

Hi Kate, your friends are cute. We see a lot of Day of the Dead treasures here but I've never seen them so large before. The girl skeleton has lovely hair and lips!

Hi Kate, great shots of this typical & characteristic images of the Mexican culture and you're right the first days of November, they can see it everywhere in multiple forms, as chocolates, candies, offerings, etc. to celebrate the Day of the Dead. Cheers from MC.
