The Day of the Dead is a Mexican celebration to honor and remember ancestors and loved ones that have passed, and ofrendas (also called altars) are an essential part of this sacred tradition. The altar is set up to guide spirits home with a set of essential offerings, including sugar skulls, Christian iconography, the elements of nature, flowers of the dead, photographs, food and drinks, and more! This one-of-a-kind collectible is a Dia de los Muertos cabinet filled with items to honor the dead. Whether you have a dollhouse or just love all things tiny, this wee decoration is too cute to resist!

Description

**About This Item**
The distressed black cabinet has subtle silver painted accents. The doors feature pink sugar skull paper cut-outs on an orange paper background, with plastic in the front to give the illusion of glass. Inside the cabinet, the shelves are painted black and lined with cotton lace trim, and the back of the shelves are decorated in festive pink and orange.

The top shelf of the altar has a ceramic jug filled with dried orange and yellow flowers to represent “Cempasuchitl” – the flowers of the dead.

There’s also a Pan de Muerto, a traditional sweet bread decorated with “bones.” Next to the loaf of bread, there’s a framed photograph of a young Frida Kahlo. There’s also a Virgen de Guadalupe (Our Lady of Guadalupe) candle in a jar.

The second shelf has a melted wax candle and a pomegranate next to a wooden bowl with oranges and grapes. There’s also two skulls with a dried flower and a tiny La Calavera Catrina statuette – the “grande dame of death.”

The bottom shelf has another skull next to a silver Holy Cross (to represent the holiday’s European Christian roots), a dried flower and another Virgen de Guadalupe candle. There’s also another Pan de Muerto, a dried flower, a skull, a bottle of wine, a fresh orange and a melted wax candle.
