Day of the Dead 2014 Wall Calendar
"The Mexican celebration of the Day of the Dead has entered mainstream popular culture with a colorful splash, with images of sugar skulls appearing on everything from apparel to jewelry and tattoos. The art of handcrafting sugar skulls and decorating them with colorful paint and sparkling embellishments has been passed down through generations of folk artists. In Day of the Dead celebrations, these small sculptures serve as gifts to the living and adorn the altars of the deceased.
Art inspired by the sugar-skull tradition is abundant and diverse. Contemporary artists draw on this rich tradition while demonstrating a remarkable variety of artistic styles. With their toothy grins and bold hues, the sugar skulls featured in the Day of the Dead wall calendar pay homage to the ancestors but are also a vibrant tribute to life and this living folk tradition.
