Sugar Skulls, a Day of the Dead Tradition

Last Sunday Miguel Quintana, a fifth-generation sugar skull artist from Puebla, Mexico, held a workshop at Casa Bonampak on Valencia Street.

Sugar skulls are used to decorate altars for Día de Los Muertos, the holiday honoring the spirits and souls of those who have died. Quintana has been visiting the United States for more than 20 years to demonstrate the traditional process of making the skulls.
