Day of the dead sand sculpture

Dia de los Muertos

Walking around Acapulco we came upon this absolutely awesome sand sculpture!

The piece celebrates the Day of the Dead in Mexico which is a very interesting festival that is a fusion of European and Native American cultures. The day is meant to honor the dead.

In this picture we see a couple celebrating with some fruits and bread of the dead!
