Carvings & Clay Figures

Day of the Dead Art

In southern Mexico, the spirits of the dead come back to visit, from noontime on October 31 through November 2. It is a time of rituals and prayer, but also of personal celebration as people "catch up" with their deceased loved ones. Many believers keep all-night vigils in Oaxaca's cemeteries, which are transformed into a wonderland of twinkling candles, yellow marigolds, and smoking incense.

This section of our of Mexican Day of the Dead art features assorted skeleton figures, handmade from wood and clay. Included are finely-detailed polychrome pottery figures by Tomás Hdz. Baez, from Puebla state, and some wooden skeleton figures from Oaxaca.
