November 1 and 2, The Day of the Dead known in this country as All Souls Day is an important date on the Roman Catholic calendar. The faithful are called upon to remember those who have passed on before. In Mexico, the occasion is marked by festive celebrations in honor of ancestors. It is traditional to present whimsical skeleton figures to one's friends. This item is an example of this irreverent folk art, intended to remind us of the connection between the worlds of the living and the hereafter, and to confront death with warmth and humor.
