Día de Muertos Illustrations

-

Día de Muertos (Day of the Dead)  is a Mexican holiday that focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. Traditions 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. The Day of the Dead celebrations in Mexico can be traced back to the indigenous cultures. Thousands of years before the Spanish Conquistadores arrived.

To celebrate this holiday, I give you a representation of Star Wars and other pop culture icons by Mis Nopales Art. Prints by José Pulido in a traditional Mexican style reminiscent of Dia de Los Muertos.
