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, favorite foods and special Day of the Dead Decorations such as the hand-painted, Mexican, Twin Vines Day of the Dead Skull.
The most popular Day of the Dead icons are skulls and skeletons, which pop up everywhere in the days and weeks leading up to the Day of the Dead celebration. 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. The Mexican Day of the Dead Skull in Color shows a skull in all its glory. Artist Amelia, of Taxco, Mexico takes pride in crafting some of the fascinating skulls available in this small mountain town. Her pieces sell in Mexico City as well as the United States. Topanien Global Gifts has bought from Amelia for years and has enjoyed watching her explore and experiment with her Day of the Dead art.
Enjoy this special piece in your home year round or present to a friend who appreciates the significance of the Day of the Dead Celebration and the phenomenal painting on this Twin Vines Day of the Dead Skull of Mexico.
