On 18th December this year, the new Star Wars film will be coming out at
the cinema. Because of how popular this film is and also how popular the
Day of the Dead Festival is, artist John Karpinsky created these images.
Here are some models of skeletons that will form part of the festival. A
lot of people like to celebrate this festival and these people like to get
creative with their models.
The Day Of The Dead Festival is where
people celebrate their lost ones and them
moving on to a better place. This happens
from the 1st November to the 2nd November.
Mexicans make handcrafts, including paper mache
skeletons and candy skulls for the festival.
People also decorate graves with orange marigold
flowers, they clean the graves, lay down gifts and sweets
and bring alcoholic drinks such as tequila, mezcal and
pulque. Some people spend all night next to the graves
of the loved ones.
Some Mexicans make ‘ofrenda’ food. This is where
people leave food sitting out in their home as it is
believed that the dead will eat the spiritual essence of
the food. Any food left over can then be eaten when the
festival is over.
The artwork created to represent
the day of the dead are usually
Skulls and or Skeletons, they
normally have vibrant colors the
stand out, they feature flowers
occasionally as well.
I think the festival is very good
and is probably a lot of fun, I like
all of the masks and costumes
and the artwork that’s linked to
the festival, overall I think I would
enjoy the day of the dead festival
because it looks very good.
