Skull Sculptures to bring Awareness of Día de los Muertos
Fifty large skull sculptures are being placed on a busy avenue with the hopes of transforming Día de los Muertos from a private holiday, celebrated in people's homes, to a public holiday, that is part of traditional city-wide festivities. This is the fourth year of this installation and can be found in Mexico City along Reforma Avenue until November 10th, 2020.
Skull sculptures have graced the streets of Mexico City as part of Day of the Dead celebrations which are being held amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Fifty large skulls have been set up along the Mexican capital's Reforma Avenue as part of an exhibition run by Mexicraneos.
With the exhibit now in its fourth year, Mexicraneos wants the event to become part of traditional festivities that are slowly transforming into a public holiday instead of the private offerings made at home to honour the dead on November 2.
This exhibition will be held until 10 November.
