No culture has more bite, pathos and humor than Mexico's. Fantastic and ironic imagery, whether laughing in the face of death and despair or celebrating life and love, are captured in highly stylized symbolic figurines. The Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos), held on the first of November is perhaps the most famous Mexican festival. Artists create figures to celebrate familiar symbols, and the ones we show are represented on the web by May is the month in which Mexican soldiers defeated the French in 1862 and won their independence, so we lift glasses of Margaritas in honor of our friends and neighbors.
