Helena - La Santisima Muerte

Image of Helena - La Santisima Muerte


All Muerto artist do a Santisima muerte, she is usually depicted as an old crone, with a scythe. I had to do something different though. To me the traditional image of death is a beautiful woman. So I have her holding a processional cross with the world on the staff under the cross. The skull which is the actual symbol of death is in her hand showing that death while coming is a calm, orderly event, not one of chaos.
