Sugar skull wall

see full description & specifications

Tzompantli is a collection of skulls from sacrifice offered to the Gods in the Mexica culture. They would fill racks with all this skulls and keep them visible to the public. Although this practice seems morbid and grim in our time, it served to enforce fear, end hence, guarantee power and loyalty to the empire.

I wanted to paint sugar skulls for the "Día de Muertos" celebration, and I thought about taking this macabre practice and turn it in to a fun and joyful scene. In Mexico, we remember and honor our dead ones on November the 2nd. We made an ofrenda with a picture of the person we want to honor, and put their favorite food or drinks, candles and marigold flowers. Sugar skulls are a long tradition in Mexico and they are usually incorporated in the ofrenda too.
