dance of death
In some cultures is possible to dance with the death
"Dia de los Muertos honors the dead with festivals and lively celebrations, a typically Latin American custom that combines indigenous Aztec ritual with Catholicism, brought to the region by Spanish conquistadores. (Dia de los Muertos is celebrated on All Saints Day and All Souls Day, minor holidays in the Catholic calendar.) " From National Geographic website here
And I was always fascinated by this traditional celebration which joins recognizion of the death as natural part of the life and at same time elements of celebration of life itself .
and yet in these days we remember the ones who were and are not anymore with us and in their honor we cover in flower .......
And to cover myself in flowers I used a mask and several headpieces to try to create that mood and that athmosphere .....
