Sugar Skull – Day of the Dead 5×7 Greeting Card by Mark Tisdale
This Day of the Dead greeting card depicts a colorful Sugar Skull or Calavera which is part of Mexican tradition. The dia de los Muertos is typically celebrated on November 1st and 2nd although the day varies by region. There’s disagreement over whether it’s an Indigenous celebration that has been combined with All Souls Day or if it’s Spanish in origin. Regardless of its ultimate origin, it seems like it has definitely evolved into the day we know in Mexico. I had the pleasure of visiting some colorful Mexican cemeteries during my visits there but I’ve never experienced Day of the Dead first hand – still on the list! But as you can see I was inspired by the colorful Sugar Skull depictions.
I would enjoy hearing what attracted you to this artwork on this card? Are you similarly intrigued by Day of the Dead celebrations? Or maybe you are of Mexican heritage or shopping for someone who is? If you have comments or questions you’d like answered, I hope you will drop me a note.
