Natural seed and wooden beads, luminous sand colored #6 Czech glass beads, carved bone skull mala beads, carved bone roundeles and a carved bone fetish combine to make a beautiful rosary style necklace based on the traditional Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) theme.

The fetish charm measures about 3" x 1". It depicts the personification of death in the classic 'animated skeleton', seen here wearing a loincloth, carrying a carved staff and collecting human skulls. The necklace is a total length of 17.5" and fits easily over the head with no clasp, as is traditional for a rosary.

In Mexico, the tradition of honoring the dead ancestors as been carried on for at least 3000 years. With the advent and adoption of Catholicism, the observance was merged with All Saints and All Souls Day, and is traditionally celebrated today on November 1st. However, a more traditional observance is the celebration for the souls of children, called either Dia de los Inocentes (Day of the Innocents) or Dia de los Angelitos (Day of the little angels) on November 1st, and a separate celebration for the souls of Adults on November 1st.
