Details

A bony white skeleton carries the scythe of the Grim Reaper, but this festive image is covered with cheerful flowers. Carved and painted by hand, it is the work of Jose Canil Ramos in Guatemala. "The skeletons represent death, and we depict them in bright colors because we've been taught that death is simply a different stage of life. This is a part of our culture," the artisan explains.

Part of NOVICA's Dia de los Muertos collection.

I love ""Paxot Holy Family"" for the beauty of the painting of the figures. It is a centrepiece at Christmas.

I adore my St. Francis Statue. I have it displayed in my work office and several people have commented on it. One way to gently share faith. Thank you.
