NIGHT OF THE DEAD
Here we have a second depiction of Noche de Muertos - of Night of the Dead. In this scene, the baby is in a shrine with a candle. The people bring flowers and offrendas to the graves of their loved ones, and there are many fruits represented. Some graves are modest, others extravagant - just as we experience life in the living world. Dia de los Muertos takes place each year on the evening of November 1 and 2nd. Often confused with Halloween, Dia de los Muertos is more connected to Ancestor Worship - or showing respect for family members who have passed away. Sometimes a family may hold special vigil for a particular family member.
