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. The Sunshine Garden Mexican Day of the Dead Skull is perfect for your own Day of the Dead celebration and or alter.

A common symbol of the Day of the Dead holiday is the skull and the Catrina, a beautiful female skeleton dressed in a flamboyant hat befitting the upper classes.  These images are seen over and over in Day of the Dead folk art from Mexico such as the many hand-painted ceramics from Topanien Global Gifts.

Enjoy a hand painted, ceramic Mexican Day of the Dead Skull and celebrate Dia De Los Muertos with friends. Topanien Global Gifts offers a wide assortment of skulls, each individually painted by hand with its own Day of the Dead design.  Skulls are similar and coordinate well together while maintaining their individuality.

If giving a Mexican Day of the Dead Skull to a friend, be sure to request free gift wrapping during your check out.
