Great delpeoples 2013-06-08 19:19

Macabre, yeah, but fascinating, hell yeah! A great shot that is really out of the ordinary, both in terms of the subject matter and your note. Can't say that the idea will catch on in terms of modern internal decoration, but what a fantastic history behind the whole need and concept behind it. I note this is taken on film and is 15 years old. I would never have guessed. Good idea the monochrome, accentuating the sense of mystery, ritual and history. I have also reading other's critiques on this and the incidence of this all around the world. I won't bore you by repeating our previous discussion, but here's a link to my photo which talks about the practice of skull worship in Southern Italy -and as you say, if the Vatican bans it, it can't be all that bad ;) A Livella

Thanks for sharing this most interesting photo with us, this is why I keep coming back to TE

Talking To delpeoples: COMPLETELY fascinating!

Hi Lisa!

Thanks for the kind and amusing note about my image, and double-thanks for the link to yours from Napoli! What a fascinating world we live in!

Allow me to read the translation of the Totó poem more deeply (and even watch the performance -- how cool that you found a video!). From the quick look, it seems right up my alley -- and something I'll incorporate into our next Dia de Muertos observance.

Aaah, mortality... ;-)

Have a GREAT day!

Austin, Texas
