To celebrate from All Hallows Eve until  The Day of the Dead on the 2nd of November –  the Gallery of the Giants presents a small collection of Mexican calacas (skeletons) and calaveras (skulls). 

I love to make a shrine to my loved ones every year for Dia del los Muertos and have collected all these Mexican trinkets over the years to help decorate it. Granny Fitch gets a cup of tea in her beloved Ivy teacup and my father a glass of fine red wine. I love to imagine them tiptoeing across from the graveyard here in Aldbourne to celebrate with us. Traditionally in Mexico a trail of scented Marigolds is laid to pave the way from the cemetery to the house for them. This year we will sadly also be making offerings of Whiskey and pickled beetroot to my wonderful father in law Peter. May all their souls rest in peace.
