Muertes Tea Party

Sandra Kane from Brisbane, Australia, sent us this digital print entitled, "Meurte's Tea Party". Here is her inspiration description for this piece, "This vibrant artwork is inspired by the holiday “El Día de los Muertos”. This colourful holiday includes both mourning and rejoicing, woven together into one emotional fabric. Death is as much a part of life, as life itself is. It is likened to welcoming home a dear friend." To see or buy Sandra's other pieces, see her Website, Etsy and Facebook.

I love a good tea party. A Dia de los Muertos one would surely be fun and festive. I like how to the skull is surrounded with flowers and birds, which represent life. The sparkley stars and fascinator (the flower with the feather) make me think this is a glamorous party for a glamorous deceased lady. If you were to throw a party for a skull, what kind would you have?
