DIA DE LOS MUERTOS
"On the Day of the Dead, it's believed that the border between the spirit world and the real world dissolve. During this brief period, the souls of the dead awaken and return to the living world to feast, drink, dance and play music with their loved ones."
This design was created for the Mitchell Park Domes and their 2022 Dia de los Muertos celebration. The design depicts a Mexican Long-nosed Bat pollinating an agave plant, the base ingredient of tequila, with the silhouette of the Desert Dome and its iconic "moon" in the background. The artwork is illustrated in the style of the papel picado, a traditonal cut-paper decoration of the holiday.
Printed with orange discharge ink for a soft, weathered finish.
