What are calaveras?
Calaveras are popular skull artworks featured during the Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebration in Mexico. Death is perceived as part of living, not something to fear, and as such is celebrated each year. The calavera (skull) is worn as a mask during celebrations and is recreated in sugar to be placed on family altars. In this way, one’s deceased relatives are remembered during the celebrations.
This calavera art is a perennially popular theme that is seen in home decor, jewelry, and even fabric!
