DAY OF THE DEAD MATCHBOX LOVERS RETABLO   

  THIS CHARMING WORK OF ART, MADE FROM A MATCHBOX, WAS EXPERTLY HANDCRAFTED IN PERU.  FEATURING DAY OF THE DEAD LOVERS, THE FIGURES WERE MADE OF CLAY.  AFTER ALL THE DETAIL WORK WAS COMPLETED, IT WAS CAREFULLY HANDPAINTED, INSIDE AND OUT, FESTIVE, BRIGHT COLORS.  RETABLO MEANS PORTABLE ALTAR AND THEY DATE BACK TO COLONIAL TIMES.  THEY REPRESENT PROTECTION FOR THE TRAVELER. 

Dia de los Muertos is a unique Mexico tradition.  Muertos is an affirmation and reflection on life.  A time during which the community remembers its' dead with affection and respect.  It notes the passage of time and gives young and old a time to meditate on life's impermance.

HIstorically, the Aztecs celebrated a variety of ceremonies honoring the dead.  OCHPANIZTLI, "the sweeping of the way", was one such ceremony.  Every home was swept and cleaned.  Household items such as pottery were destroyed and replaced as part of a later ceremony.  During Panquetzaliztli , special foods were eaten and offered to the dead including candy & sugar offerings, special breads and sauces.  So deeply were these ceremonies of respect and recognition ingrained into the indigenous psyche that they continue to the present.

Irreverent humor and political satire are also important aspects of Day of the Dead.  Traditional and hilarious depiction in the form of skeletons mimicking human frialties poke fun at the vanity of the living!

  IT IS TRULY A DELIGHTFUL PIECE OF PERUVIAN FOLK ART !

EACH ONE IS UNIQUE!   COLORS WILL VARY!
