During the Mexican festival symbolizing the ritual of death and rebirth, the wearing of skulls and skeletons is long tradition. Designed to venerate, honor, and even mock death, the Day of the Dead remembers and celebrates the dead as a means to bring them back to life.
The mask covers the upper half of the face, with wide skull's eyes ringed in black and red flower motif. A hand-painted design of flowers embellishes the white surface of the whole skull mask. Cloth flowers, black, blue, pink and red in color, adorn the top and sides of the mask against the wearer's head. The mask ties at the back with a black ribbon as tightly as wished. This marvelous piece is sure to bring delight to this year's celebration.
