Skull with Lizards & Caterpillars
Item Number: DD009
This delicately crafted, one-of-a-kind clay skull was made with metal wires for the caterpillar antenna, then intricately decorated in bright acrylic colors. Hand made by artist Jose Mendez in his southern Mexico home, it is an excellent example of traditional Mexican folk art. Mendez' artwork is inspired by Mexico's annual Day of the Dead celebrations, which take place October 31 - November 2 in homes and villages throughout Mexico.
