Day of the Dead Calaca Serving Pan Dulce

Day of the Dead Calaca Serving Pan Dulce

This charming paper mache Day of the Dead folk art figure was made by the Bobadilla brothers of Mexico City. I’ve talked about these brothers before because they are so good at capturing the joy the deceased spirits feel when they return for their annual visit during Dia de los Muertos…always smiling and participating in the activities of life that they enjoyed when they were alive! This skeleton fellow loves pan dulce–don’t we all?

I am not the only one recognizing their talent. Their recognizable style and quality pieces are found in several museums throughout Mexico.
