Do you remember the opening scene of James Bond 007 Spectre, where Daniel Craig walks among a parade in Mexico where everyone wore costumes and makeup to symbolize death? If you didn't watch the film, you can see it here:
The parade is a celebration for Día de Muertos, or the "Day of the Dead." La Catrina honors and protects those who have passed away and symbolizes the Mexican relationship with death. It is said to have originated from the Aztec goddess of death, Mictecacihuatl.
The artwork of La Catrina is fascinating. We wanted to honor La Catrina with our own lollipop collection.
You can see the entire La Catrina Collection here:
Hope you enjoy the lollipops and have a festive celebration of La Catrina!
