Sugar Skulls for Dia de los Muertos

Artist Dominick Porras is in the studio with Simone describing the significance of sugar skulls.

Sugar skulls are a traditional offering used to celebrate the Mexican holiday Dia de Los Muertos. Usually placed as decorations to recognize those who have passed away, the sugar skull represents a departed soul and can have the name written on the forehead to be placed at a home altar or gravestone to honor the loved ones no longer with us.
