Paper Cuts

Day of the Dead

Day of the Dead

In Mexico a popular holiday is the Day of the Dead, where the dead are honored. In many ways it’s a very creative holiday, as people paint their faces to look like skeletons and make the cut-paper banners. The designs are often elaborate and depict skeletons doing everyday activities. BibliOdyssey has a large collection of the paper artwork.
