Skeleton Coffee Drinker Mug

These skeletons are inspired by Latin American Day of the Dead folk art, and the works of the great Mexican graphic artist, Jose Guadalupe Posada. Posada was best known for his œcalveras, skeletons that actively engage in everyday activities and, with humor and irony, show the absurdity of the human condition. His work was based on the traditional art of All Souls Day, however Posada made his skeletons both more lively and more political. Folk art in not a static form but, as an expression of the soul of a people, is a forever changing commentary on contemporary life.
