La Santa Muerte' Mexican Day of the Dead Figure Statue Ornament
Nemesis Now Premium Veronese Range
Santa Muerte is a female deity in Mexican Catholicism.
Also known as Nuestra Senora de la Santa Muerte, she is the personification of death, and is a symbol of healing, protection, and safe delivery to the afterlife.
Santa Muerte is also seen as a protector of homosexual, bisexual, and transgender communities in Mexico, as many are considered to be outcast from society.
Many LGBT people ask her for protection from violence, hatred, disease, and to help them in their search for love. (source:Wikipedia)
Usually honoured on Dia de los Muertos, she is a constant reminder of our mortality.
Here we see her skeletal female figure, clad in a long robe, holding a scythe and a globe.
She stands on a mound of skulls, skeletal hands gripping her clock, urging her to help them pass over to the afterlife.
Cast in the finest resin before being carefully hand-painted, this piece is the perfect way to honour this beautiful Mexican deity.
