Dia de los Muertos - Day of the Dead 'Los Muertos' art is all inspired by the beautiful celebration of 'Dia de los Muertos' or 'Day of the Dead'. The artwork represents and speaks from the same places of beauty and power that this holiday was built from. 'Los Muertos' art is meant to show life and death as one eternal entity. You cannot have one without the other. In understanding death, as a part of life, you can embrace and accept it rather than fear it. It also encompasses the belief that our souls are eternal, and that each new birth or death is simply another stage in our soul journey. The symbol of the skeleton or skull is used to signify death and rebirth. Instead of fearing death, through these symbols it is celebrated, embraced and considered to be a "moving-on" to a higher level of consciousness.
