Day Of The Dead Head

“The Day of the Dead (El Día de los Muertos or All Souls' Day) is a holiday celebrated in Mexico and by Latin Americans living in the United States and Canada. The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. The celebration occurs on November 1st and 2nd in connection with the Catholic holiday of All Saints' Day which occurs on November 1st and All Souls' Day which occurs on November 2nd.” (from Wikipedia)

My dearest life long friend in the entire world gave me a gift of this Earthtones ceramic tile today. It was made in Tucson, Arizona and is called “Day of the Dead Head.”

I shall display it with pride in my bathroom.
