Dinosaur Garden of Dreams - Dia De Los Muertos

"Sleep well in the garden of your dreams..."

Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a two day Mexican holiday for participants to celebrate, honor and communicate with friends and family who have died. In most regions, November 1 is set aside for remembering infants and children, or angelitos (little angels). Those who have died as adults are honored November 2.

Day of the Dead 'figurines' and mini altars often represent the activities of loved one's when they were happiest while alive.

Made with a found drawer, can lids, clay, chandelier crystals, glass beads, sticks, scrap metal and wire, natural objects.

Whole piece: 13"x11"
(10" high with tallest crystal arm)See the whole piece here.

Dig this-->I'm honored to be found via Flickr by "ArtEvolved," and added by admin to their cool paleoart site. Be sure to check out this fun blog, and scroll it to see which image of mine they used (hint: it is NOT pictured here)!
