We paint our faces like skulls because We want our loved ones who return to know we are just like them, we are their equals, we are not too far behind them either, we mock the inevitable;Death. Transitioning, Change, Reflecting, Tezcalipoka, The Great Mystery, Death, Birth, all in the same place, excepting all things. Facing the Truth. Facing Death. Honoring Death and Celebrating the Dead.
