"What Are Calacas?"
Handmade skeleton figurines, called calacas, are part of the Day of the Dead celebration. Calacas usually show an active and joyful afterlife. Figures of musicians, generals on horseback, even skeletal brides, in their white bridal gowns marching down the aisles with their boney grooms.
Below are some of the Calacas and other Day of the Dead items from our personal collection. Click on the image to view a larger picture
