The Day of the Dead, or “El Dia de Los Muertos” is a Mexican holiday which is celebrated every year at the beginning of November. Skulls or “Calaveras” are used to honor the departed. They were considered a prominent symbol for the Aztecs and were used as an offering to Mictecacihuatl, the goddess of death. During the festivities, treats are formed into sugar cane skulls embellished with icing, gems, and other ornamentation. It is a song to the afterlife and a reminder that one should not live in fear of one’s mortality. Inspired by this holiday, our Skull Collection, seeks to continue with the tradition and connect with the celebration of life. The sugar cane skulls featured in our creation are colorful, abstract designs with bright accents that will bring this vibrant celebration to life in your home.
