Pop-out Ofrenda with Peek-a-Boo Muerto

A2106

14 1/2″ wide x 15″ high x 6″ deep Made in Mexico.

Home ofrendas are built in the main room of the house the day before Day of the Dead begins. Ofrenda designs vary from region to region in Mexico, but they all use organic materials available in the region. In the Yucatan, where it’s very hot & humid, offerings of fruit hang by string over the banana leaf covered ofrenda. In the state of Mexico and Oaxaca, you see the most sugar skulls… I’ve strange things too! Since family members put things on the ofrenda to delight the spirits, I’ve seen Playboy magazines, cigars, playing cards, knitting needles and imported Brachs lemon drops. This pop-out ofrenda has room on the sides for personalization if you choose. Add a photo or remembrance. The lid of the coffin opens to let the happy skeleton peep out. (shown on blue background)
