The Santisima Muerte (aka, Saint Death or Santisima Muerte) is a non-canonized saint, however she is highly revered throughout the Americas as a protector and brings luck in love and life. The red hand-painted background accents the image of the saint on this very special medal. It measures about 1-1/2 inch long.

La Santisima Muerte's (the Death Saint) roots are in the cult of an Indian goddess whom the Aztecs called Mictlancihuatl meaning the “Lady of Death”. She is closely associated with the Day of the Dead and is frowned upon by the Catholic Church, although she is believed by many to be an incarnation of the Blessed Mother, in much the same way as the Virgin of Guadalupe.

La Santisima Muerte is often depicted as a female Grim Reaper. There are three figures that are used in this cult - a white one, a black one, and a red one. The white was is for cures and for luck. The black one is for protection and vengeance, and the most commonly used one is red - for love spells, for which she is most famously successful.

Some versions of this folk saint have her holding a scythe, like the grim reaper, while others have her holding a set scales. With these scales, she weighs the good and evil of your life. If the good you have done in your life outweighs the bad, Santisima Muerte takes you in one direction, and if the bad outweighs the good, she takes you in the other.
