Sugar Skull is one of the most iconic elements in Mexico’s death Day celebrations. These skull shaped objects range in size from small to large and are decorated with bright icing, metal paper, sequins or other decorative details. Sugar Skull can be used for decoration and eating.
Sugar Skull often writes a person’s name on a small piece of paper on his forehead. The name is the person who created the skull, the person who accepted it or was remembered. Sugar Skull is not only a sacrifice to the altar at home, but also a symbol of life as a gift (gently reminding us of our own death).
