Huge Day of the Dead Skulls Honoring Frida Kahlo Pop Up Around Mexico City

October 24, 2021

Mexico City is gearing up for the annual Day of the Dead celebration with an art exhibition that honors one of its most famous artists. Frida Kahlo is represented in 10 larger-than-life ‘calaveras,’ the iconic decorated skulls that often have come to embody Dia De Los Muertos. Day of the Dead is a time of remembrance and respect for loved ones who have passed away. The celebrations date back to pre-colonized indegenious civilizations who lived on modern-day Mexican soil.
