My second piece to celebrate the Mexican “Dia de Los Muertos” (Day of the Dead) festival is called “La Danza Azteca”, and is intended to reflect the Aztec origins of the festival, and the troops of dancers known as “Concheros who dance in public spaces throughout Mexico to honour the traditions and rituals of their pre-hispanic culture. 

My Conchero wears a headdress depicting Tlaloc, the Aztec god of rain, water, and fertility, and a necklace bearing the image of Mictlantecuhtli, the God of the Dead and ruler of Mictlan, the Aztec underworld.

As usual, I’ve included some detail shots and the original concept sketch, if you’re interested.

If you like what you see, please also check out my earlier Day of the Dead post “La Calavera Catrina”.
