Dia de los Muertos Figurines Provide Festive Animation

October 31, 2010

Always avoiding the scary, and what Dia de los Muertos can seem like…we tentatively attended a party a few years ago that turned out to be quite fantastic and brought the true meaning of the traditions into a much more beautiful celebration than usually depicted . To honor and remember those who have passed – the table was set with a spectacular centerpiece of flowers, candles, several folk art figures of spectacularly carved and painted wood. The night continued with people gathering, telling stories of those they had lost and all in all it was quite fascinating and comforting.
With Halloween behind us and Dia de los Muertos just ahead, we see many of the unique and highly collectable figurines presented in festive animation. This elegant Catrina from Peru sold today to an enthusiastic collector. I’m glad to have captured her in a photo.
Happy Halloween and may fantastic fanciful Dia de los Muertos figurines and their artistic expressions tickle your imagination this season.
