Many cultures celebrate their ancestors spiritual journey, but to me the most eye catching celebration is the Mexican holiday day of the dead. In this celebration family and friends gather to honor the memory of their departed love ones.
A day to remember their friends and family members who have died, in this tradition, altars are created in honor of the deceased; This altars are filled with their favorite foods and beverages and decorated with marigolds, sugar skulls which represents the departed soul. Sugar skulls are placed on their graves as well as offerings.
I am not from the Mexican heritage but their love for their departed have inspired me. In gratitude and to honor my ancestor, who have gave me the inheritance of knowledge that I use today in my mixed media creations and many other craft; I've painted several skull canvas art in their favorite colors.
