So popular in the southwestern United States, this is a classic painted skull that reflects a rich culture begun by the ancient Aztecs.

Skulls are used as traditional decorations to celebrate the day. This is a custom that began with the early Aztecs using real skulls. Today, they are beautiful hand painted pottery art also used for southwest decor.

This skull features a place for a tea-light candle, and carved holes to let the light shine through. It is sure to look just as lovely during the day, as it does at night.
