This ornament is a miniature version of our Day of the Dead Skull from Mexico, finished with a grosgrain ribbon loop for hanging. 

Skull measures 1.5" W x 2" H.

The Day of the Dead, or Día de los Muertos, is a holiday held throughout Mexico on All Saints' Day that combines Aztec and Spanish Catholic traditions. This day is a fantastic celebration of the lives of deceased ancestors and friends, filled with food, singing, dancing, and games. The deceased are believed to awaken to share in the festivities. Traditionally, families decorate tombs and build altars, or ofrendas, as an offering to the dead. The altars are piled with cempasúchil (marigolds known as the flower of the dead), candles, the deceased's favorite foods, and skulls made of candy or clay. These whimsical St. Frank skulls, miniaturized here as a holiday ornament, symbolize death and rebirth and are decorated with bright colors that reflect the joy & spirit of lost loved ones.
