Unusual Images, Lovely Sentiment

It took me a long time to understand that Day of The Dead was a beautiful thing. The images always looked kind of creepy to me so I couldn't get beyond it to understand it is all about honoring your ancestoral family. In a country that is largely focused on youthful presence, it's exciting to see people honoring their parents, aunts, uncles, grandparents, etc. This piece is almost done and is by student Elisa Regan who owns the Sacred Moondance Quilt Shop in Lake Forest, Ca.
