Embody the great spirit of Day of the Dead with this beautiful and whimsical Calavera Catrina adornment set. Calavera Catrina is known as the grande Dame of Death! Her creation was inspired by Mictecacihuatl, Lady of the Dead, who is part of ancient Aztec folklore. She reigned over, and was the keeper of, the bones in the underworld, and she presided over the ancient month-long Aztec festivals honoring the dead. Once Christian beliefs superimposed on the ancient rituals, those celebrations evolved into today’s Day of the Dead.
The Day of the Dead honors our connection with loved ones who have crossed the invisible veil between the world of the living and the world of the dead. For Aztecs, much like Celts, this was a time for celebration – a time when the living had a thin layer between worlds and could connect with deceased loved ones.
To this day, this holiday is celebrated by many all over the world. Mexican culture keeps death (and by extension their deceased loved ones) close, celebrating the Life that once walked the Earth. La Catrina embodies that philosophy, as she asks us to treat death as a friend who reminds us to live each day with gratitude and wonder.
