Sugar Skull 

Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is an interesting holiday, which is celebrated on November 1st and 2nd in Mexico. A sugar skull is a representation of a human skull and is made of sugar, chocolate, nuts, and other treats. People offer sugar skulls on graves and family altars during the Day of the Dead. They recognize the person who has passed, and the individual’s name is written on the forehead of the skull. While it’s a clear symbol of death, it’s also a symbol of life. A “sugar” skull implies that there’s a certain sweetness in death. Sugar skulls are about celebration and not sorrow. 

Genuine sea-tumbled glass (rare yellow, red, and cobalt blue), pottery, and found clay marbles were used to complete the artwork.
