The large faces on the left and right are children deep in thought, imagining a “dia de los muertos” fantasy world. Family and friends share stories and prepare a tribute to loved ones who return in spirit for the holiday. The tradition of throwing a party for the living and dead is ancient, passed down by our ancestors.
