Day of the Death Series
The making of this exhibition is with the idea of showing the way that Mexicans see death; from my dedicated and personal view I will attempt to portray the mixed feeling of morn and joy, tragedy and fun. The fear to death itself and how different these feelings are expressed in Mexico, where playing with death, making fun of it, or simply having it close is part of the rich Mexican culture.
The cult of the death had a special and fundamental significance among natives. Based on those ceremonies, Mexicans today have inherited a number of ritual, offerings and behaviors that surround every funerary event.
The pieces in this Series are currently not available, only the Small Clay Skulls from the instalation can be sold separately.
