Tin Skeleton Art

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.

Handmade, Day of the Dead tin skeleton figures are created for us by two renowned tinsmith families in Oaxaca, Mexico. Most of the smaller, 4-inch figures are by the family of Angel Valdez. The larger figures are made by Artesanias Garcia. These figures are entirely handmade (cut out from flat sheets of tin, punched, embossed and soldered) by craftsmen using precision and artistic flair. Painted with durable lacquer and enamel colors, tin figures are inexpensive, lightweight and long lasting.
