Candy Corn Took a Stroll by Sean Christopher




Today is All Souls Day, the final day of Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) I had to post this piece. The skull, the headpiece and the robe remind me so much of the Day of the Dead festivities I've enjoyed for a few years now.

Dia de los Muertos is mostly thought of as a Catholic holiday. However many non Catholics celebrate it as it is a day for both remembering the dead and honoring them. Those who practice Catholicism normally attend Mass, usually praying for the dead to find Heaven instead of Hell or Purgatory. But those of us who are sane and do not affiliate ourselves with such brainwashing, dare I say mind-fucking, cults. You can look beyond the gathering of scalding religious punishment to something more Spiritual and the happiness these people brought us.

You can see more work by Sean Christopher here.

OH, those are ice cream towers! And I was just thinking about ice cream, way too early in the day, too....

Interesting post, intriguing picture. May there be flowers and ice cream in heaven!
(though I don't believe in heaven)
