Come celebrate the Mexican tradition of El Dia de Los Muertos (the Day of the Dead), with these funky, handmade pieces of art! Each year in early November the people of Mexico gather in their local cemeteries to honor dearly departed loved ones and to celebrate the continuity of life. Traditions surrounding this holiday vary from region to region, but in many homes "ofrendas," or temporary alters, are constructed to bear flowers, bread, fruit, candy, cigarettes and even tequila as offerings for the dead. Handmade skeleton figures called "calacas" are also popular, as they depict an active and joyful afterlife. La Fuente Imports is proud to offer the largest variety of these figurines available anywhere on the web, some relatively simple but others painstakingly produced by hand, as well as many other unique Day of the Dead collections including: tiles, figures, night lights, shirts, sugar skull molds, gifts for kids and more.
