Estela Boneybags - La Calavera de la Catrina OOAK Art Doll Day of the Dead art.
This ofrenda was constructed in remembrance of women killed along the Texas/Mexico border. I believe there is one sugar skull for every women who has been found dead. The symbolism is strong, powerful and controversial. Each skull has the name of one woman killed in the Juarez, Mexico area. Unfortunately little has been done to stop the carnage. The installation was presented at Dia de los Muertos in 2006 at the National Hispanic Cultural Center in Albuquerque.
You are more than you think you are. There are dimensions of your being and a potential for realization and consciousness that are not included in your concept of yourself. Your life is much deeper and broader than you conceive it to be here. What you are living is but a fractional inkling of what is really within you, what gives you life, breathe, and depth.
