MEXICAN SUGAR SKULLS
Handcrafted the QUINTANA family from MEXICO, sugar skull artisans for five generations!
Highly recognized for their craftsmanship they have been
featured in TV documentaries, calendars and have won many national folk art contests
(one prize was a large altar made completely of
sugar!) The molds to make the sugar skulls were
inherited by his great grandfather and now the young
fifth generation of Quintana’s are learning the family
Sugar skulls are a Mexican tradition made during Dia
de los Muertos ( Day of the Dead) celebrated in Mexico
during Nov. 1 & 2.They are used to decorate altars or
tombs or can be given away as presents to those who
are still alive. The tinfoil on the forehead is where
you write the person’s name you have dedicated the
skull to. Remember the dead are never forgotten
because once a year they visit the earth to share the
fruits and flowers with the living!
