Milagros stocks all your Day of the Dead needs. From papel picado, ceramic skeletons, tin skeletons, tin skeleton mermaids, skeleton dancers, paper maiche devils and sequinned skulls.
“The Mexican … is familiar with death, jokes about it, caresses it, sleeps with it, celebrates it. True, there is as much fear in his attitude as in that of others, but at least death is not hidden away: he looks at it face to face, with impatience, disdain or irony.””
Octavio Paz from the Labyrinth of Solitude
