Colourful decoration / cushion for the Day of the Dead, All Saints, Halloween, from Mexico. Made of felt, completely embroidered (front) and sewn by hand, the calavera / skull symbolises life even after death. Can be used as room or table decoration.
In the Mexicans' imagination, people only die definitively when they are forgotten. Therefore, even after death, they live in the "land of the remembered" and are commemorated every year in the "Dia de Muertos" festival. Altars are also set up with lots of flowers and, above all, photos of the loved ones and their favourite food and drink. In many cases, musicians called "mariachis" are called to the cemetery to play the favourite songs of the deceased. A sensual feast in bright colours filled with emotions.
