The Day of the Dead is celebrated throughout Mexico annually in late October or early November to coincide with the Catholic holiday of All Saints Day. Family and friends gather to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died, and help support their spiritual journey. People enjoy this public holiday with building private alters, visiting graves and honoring the deceased with sugar skulls, flowers and favorite foods.

This eight inch ceramic art hand-painted tile will make an exciting decoration for any room: business office, dining room, kitchen, bathroom, living room, museum, and gallery. The tile can be immediately hung on the wall or displayed on a table using the built-in easel on the back. It can also be installed into a tile wall as an actual ceramic tile by easily removing the backing. Soak the tile for 2-3 hours(or over night) in water and the backing will loosen. Then you can permanently affix the tile into your project.
The tile has two dimensional contour lines that are hard to see by the picture image alone. The actual art tile has elevated outlines that you can feel, almost like reliefs. The hand painted ceramic is unique in its glazed shiny finish. It will sparkle as it reflects any lighting through the transparent glass-like glaze which is unseen in photo copies or pictures. It is very classy, elegant and luxurious and will brighten up any room or office.
