Calavera de San Angel / Watercolor / 6 x 9 inches

In a corner of the garden of an estate turned antiques and arts store in the beautiful area of Mexico City known as San Angel, I was taken by surprise by this giant, twelve to fifteen foot Calavera, or Skeleton, twisting in the wind. The Mexicans are not a bit afraid to stare death straight in the face. Depictions of skeletons are everywhere. But when you come across one this large, and it is not in a parade or ceremony, you pay attention. I did, and couldn't wait to get it down on paper.

  1. Would like to find out more and how old this skeleton is. We had live giants before Noah’s flood. Is in a proper place seeing the cross. Very appropriate.
