Dia de los Muertos - Mexico

XXXVII-86 - Exclusively selected Fine art print

Dia de los Muertos | Oaxaca | Mexico, 2017

 

The festival itself originated in pre-Spanish Mexico, while its main symbol, the skull, derives from La Calavera Catrina (‘Elegant Skull’), an early 20th-century drawing by Jose
Guadalupe Posada that was inspired by the ancient Aztec goddess of death. ‘La Catrina’, as the figure in the drawing is known, is an important symbol in Mexican culture, and she embodies death itself. She is depicted as a skull wearing a hat with f lowers and this image reappears in many variations throughout the Day of the Dead celebrations. She helps people honour their lost loved ones and celebrate life.

Jimmy Nelson Foundation

With your purchase you support Indigenous communities taking their heritage into the future

With its projects, the Jimmy Nelson Foundation (JNF) is completing the circle Jimmy has started. As cultures are rapidly changing through time, and the world’s cultural diversity is at risk, now is the moment to act. The JNF supports Indigenous communities in preserving and passing on their traditional heritage and knowledge by investing in reciprocity and educational projects.

When you look at people- whether they are the Huli from Papua New Guinea, the Mursi from Ethiopia or even oneself- look beyond and do not judge. Often the truth is far different from what the eye beholds.
