The Mexican celebration of the Day of the Dead has entered mainstream culture with a colorful splash. The art of handcrafting sugar skulls and decorating them with vivid paint and sparkling embellishments has been passed down through generations of folk artists. In Day of the Dead celebrations, these sculptures serve as gifts to the living and adorn the altars of the deceased. Contemporary artists draw on this rich tradition while demonstrating a remarkable variety of creative styles. With their toothy grins and bold hues, the sugar skulls featured in the Day of the Dead wall calendar honor the ancestors and are a vibrant tribute to life and this living folk tradition.
