Dia de los Muertos Wood Burned Art

 

The Day of the Dead (el Día de los Muertos), is a Mexican holiday where families welcome back the souls of their deceased relatives for a brief reunion that includes food, drink and celebration. A blend of Mesoamerican ritual, European religion and Spanish culture, the holiday is celebrated each year from October 31-November 2. While October 31 is Halloween, November 1 is “el Dia de los Inocentes,” or the day of the children, and All Saints Day. November 2 is All Souls Day or the Day of the Dead.

 

I wood burned this lovely lady with my Optima II burner. Then I used a variety of materials to bring her to life.  I first used watercolors, then colored pencils, then gold glitter, and more acrylic paint, then chaulk for the feathers in her hat. An athentic Tacie Jensen is burned in to the back, and a sawtooth hanger is attached for easy wall installation.
