Skeleton Day of the Dead Clip Art - Dia de los Muertos Graphics

Day of the Dead - Dia de los Muertos - is a Mexican celebration of departed souls that occurs just after Halloween, on November 1. Day of the Dead motifs abound in skeleton clip art and skulls graphics for decorations, art and costume. Decorated skulls and skeletons dressed as living characters are the major theme of Day of the Dead clip art and graphics.

I love the artistic combinations and use of bright fiesta colors in contrast with the stark white and black of the bones. My collection of favorite, free Day of the Dead clip art and skeleton graphics for Dia de los Muertos has a few skeleton and skull crafts tossed in just for fun.

Dia de los muertos is NOT Halloween, Mexico-style. It's celebrated on All Souls Day (November 1) and is a Mexican family celebration to honor the memory and life of deceased relatives. Shrines are built, picnics at the cemetary are planned, dancing and celebration are the order of the day and night.

Have You Celebrated Day of the Dead? - Did you ever hear of this Mexican holiday before reading this lens?

I first learned about dia de los muertos about 20 years ago, when I was browsing in a handcrafts shop in Massachusetts. The shop's display of many tiny skeleton statues, ornaments and jewelry intrigued me and caught my eye, and the small informational cards near each arrangement explained the meaning and traditions of the holiday.

    Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and Dia de los Muertos goes hand-in-hand with it. I love the sculpture and the great pictures you have here. I enjoyed this lens very much.
