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.

Read More About Skeletons Dioramas
Our Mexican Day of the Dead skeleton dioramas, (also known as shadow boxes and cajitas de muertos) are handmade in Puebla by Enrique Muñoz. This is authentic Dia de Los Muertos folk art. Take a look at the detail in Enrique’s clever cantina scenes, pool halls, bride and grooms, mariachi players and cemetery scenes. Note that each box is one of a kind. There are small variations on the details within each box. For example, the color of Frida’s dress, or the images on the back wall of each pool hall may differ from box to box. The box you receive may not exactly match the one shown in the photos, but it will certainly be clever and unique.
