It may have started as a Mexican and South/Central American celebration but Dia de los Muertos - Day of the Dead - is known throughout the world for not only the celebration of those who have come (and gone) before but also as an exciting and colorful celebration of life itself.
This brightly colored tin ornament handmade in Mexico is no exception. Tin turned into pieces of art is a Mexican (and Spanish Colonial) craft tradition but these tin ornaments are art for your tree. We think they're also pretty special to hang in a window, as a package adornment, tucked into a greeting card or - why not?! - ideal for gracing the wall of your office cubicle all year long!
Each of these grinning skulls is hand crafted by Mexican artists out of tin and then brightly painted. Lightweight and ready to hang. Sold individually.
