In Mexican culture the dead remain alive in our memories. Dia de los Muertoscelebrated on November first and second each yearrepresents days when the veils are thin between worlds and those still on Earth can pay tribute to their ancestors and friends who have passed. When welcoming the dead back to the realm of the living, ofrendas (alters) are created and adorned with candles, flowers, offerings of food and drink, and often calaveras (skull decorations). Mexican American artists Tino Rodriguez and Virgo Paraiso offer vibrant takes on calaveras in the 12 jaw-dropping images in this calendar.
