Catrina and Day of the Dead

Here is a photo of one of the many variations of Catrina. She looks rather elegant and sassy, don't you think?

Since today is officially Dia de los Muertos or Day of the Dead, I thought I would share a couple of more days of photos with you from my Day of the Dead art collection.

Day of the Dead is an indigenous tradition to annually remember friends and family who have passed on, and it was started 2,500 to 3,500 years ago.

Part of the history dates back to an Aztec festival dedicated to a goddess called Mictecacihuatl (or today Lady of the Dead). She was the Queen and presided over Mictlan, which is the place believers eventually get to when you pass on.

The modern day version of Mictecacihuatl became Catrina. You will see many styles of Catrina at every celebration. I will show two more days of Day of the Dead figures and then you can pick your favorite.

Enjoy your family and friends on this special day!

We also have travel photos of the Sydney Opera House in Australia at Viva la Voyage!

This collection looks very interesting!
She is a little bit over fashion, but I liked her dress!

She does look a bit sassy and quite fashionable too!

I'm a Dia de los Muertos fan, so I'm really enjoying everything you post on the theme.

Thérèse said...

Very interesting details Julie.

Paula said...

As I get older I look for more tangible ways to deal with death, an inevitable event. I think having a day for honoring those that have passed on is a wonderful idea. Catrina looks like a Dia de los Muertes Barbie and I really like her.

A life filled week for you all !

Something I hadn't known, thank you! Always fun to learn something new.

Don and Krise said...

We were talking about this (and your recent posts) earlier today. I'm learning a little more each day.

Nathalie said...

Thanks for the amazing photo and the interesting info !

Catrina is a party on both sides of the grave. I agree with Paula -- I think a day honoring the dead is so much better than a day that fears the dead.

Rob and Mandy said...

Very interesting pictures. The lady on the photo reminds me a lot of some alien dressed up as human in the movie "Mars attacks"

Gaelyn said...

So far I like your Catrina best. Nice collection.

The Boulder doors are awesome.
