A Halloween Sculpture


a halloween sculpture



In tradition there is a big difference from Halloween and Dia de los Muertos... What do you celebrate ?
Yesterday on the radio I was hearing a debate on how Halloween had been gaining ground into border cities going down in to Mexico. It debated the idea about Halloween being very commercial and how it somehow corrupts the ideas of kids.
A very interesting debate I thought..
Living on the border perhaps people celebrate both. In my family as far as I can remember we have always celebrated both. I like the idea that the Cemetery Museum has created the Dia de los Muertos Festivities, where they teach the Dia de los Muertos traditions.

QUALITY I really like this blog, now im not 1 for adding links in my replies but I feel this is a great exception, this reminds me of some similar stuff by graffiti artist “SER” at http://www.hire-a-graffiti-artist.co.uk his a great graffiti artist form London and has many different styles. There are a few more good graffiti artists on the site called Graffiti Kings that graffiti bedrooms, night clubs & everything else “wink wink” lol.
