QUALITY AND TRADITION: Exceptional artisan quality. The tradition of painting skulls to honor the dead has been passed down for years from generation to generation. HAND-PAINTED BY MEXICAN ARTISANS: This skull (calavera) is made by a local community in Morelos , Mexico. DIMENSIONS: Each ceramic skull is 8.0″ height x 5.0″ width x 6.5″ long. As an artisanal handmade product, they may vary slightly in size and shape. VERSATILE: The skull (calavera) can be used as decoration for any space or as an ofrenda at the altar. NO IDENTICAL SKULLS: As a handmade product, no two skulls are identical. Therefore, the skull that you receive may not be the exact same one as pictured. It will, however, have the exact same colors and it will be of the same great quality.
