Giant Skeletons Emerge From A Street In Mexico City


San Pedro Tláhuac Tradicional

Huge skeletons have “came to life” from a street in Mexico City. Celebrating the Day of the Dead, the sculptures have become the centre of attention in the whole Tlahuac neighbourhood.

They measure over 11 feet wide and 7 feet tall, and set the tone for the important annual festival during which the locals honour the lives of the departed.

Piles of crumbled concrete at the places where the skeletons are connected to the street perfectly create the illusion that the undead are bursting through the asphalt.

The lively sculptures were created by Jaén Cartonería, a family team of artisans who have been embracing the tradition for the past eight years.

Jaén Cartonería used papier-mâché to create the sculptures and painted them in a way that makes it look that the skeletons are smiling.

The Day of the Dead holiday has family and friends gathering to pray for and remember the loved ones who have died, supporting their spiritual journey. Interestingly, in Mexican culture, death is viewed as a natural part of the human cycle. Therefore, Mexicans view this multi-day holiday not as a day of sadness but as a day of happiness, since their loved ones come to celebrate with them.
