Calavera pendant necklace made of gold-plated brass. A jewel that fully enhances the Mexican dias de los muoertos. A prasiolite-eyed skull is fully decorated with emerald, ruby, pearl, sapphire, garnet and swarovski.
Calaveras remind us to celebrate our life and our mortality, to look to the past and the future, but remaining in the present.
The Mexican calavera is certainly one of the most unique and at the same time most widespread and peculiar figures of Mexican popular culture. Its origins stem from the genius of Jose Guadalupe Posada, who gives birth to a totally new representation of death, a death with a human face, not at all frightening or allusive to the sad and inevitable end but absolutely vital and humorous.
