This piece combines both the features of Mexico’s most renowned artist, with her mono brow, earrings and gold tooth and day of the dead artwork. Sugar skulls are a traditional candy used in Day of the Dead celebrations, as a funny treat given to the receiver with their name on it. Decorated with metallic paper, sequins and coloured sugar paste, some are so beautiful they become short lived artistic manifestations of the intimate relationship Mexicans have with death and their dead. Throughout the globe modern ‘sugar skulls’ can found represented in print, design and on tattooed bodies (everywhere) embracing the beauty of Mexican design and culture.
