I do believe that is the ugliest bit of "art", I have ever laid eyes upon.

Looks like a macabre version of "Jason's" masked head.

Have you no appreciation for El Dios de los Muertos, The Day of the Dead?

Scholars trace the origins of today’s modern Day of the Dead holiday back hundreds of years to Meso-American and pre-Columbian civilizations. Rituals celebrating the deaths of ancestors were observed by these civilizations for 2,500–3,000 years. One Meso-American civilization, the Aztecs, had a festival dedicated to the goddess Mictecacihuatl, Queen of the underworld, ruler of the afterlife. Like the other Meso-American civilizations, the Aztecs kept skulls as trophies and displayed them during the ritual. The skulls were used to symbolize death and rebirth. The Aztecs timed these rituals by using the Aztec calendar, based on the Mayan calendar. Last year on December 21, 2012, the Aztec and Mayan calendars completed its current “Great Cycle” of the Long Count.


Today the holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. Traditions connected with the holiday include building private altars honoring the deceased using sugar skulls, marigolds, and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed, and visiting graves with these as gifts.


In keeping with the Aztec idea of rebirth and the beginning of the next calendar “Great Cycle”, we are celebrating our 2013 Day of the Dead event at the Sun Gallery with our annual Day of the Dead Art Show called “A NEW BEGINNING”.

Am a big fan of El Dios de los Muertos and have neen cascinated by it since I first heard of it (about 15 years ago, which means me sound very ignorant.)

One of my favourite pieces of junk jewellry is a Day of the Dead style skull ring.
Mum thinks that is ugly. It's not btw.
When I win my millions I will have a ChoccyWoccyDooDah Day of the Dead cake at my party. Damn they make a fine cake. They made my wedding cake, but I don't hold it against them.
