Calavera Halloween Horse
Every autumn, the Dia de los Muertos (the Day of the Dead) is observed in Latin America. While skull and skeleton imagery is prevalent, the holiday is anything but scary! Dia de Los Muertos is a time of celebration and remembrance, full of colourful festivals, music, and activities to honour those who have passed away. It's a beautiful occasion where people choose to honour their deceased with joy instead of sorrow. Calavera is a colourful stallion named after the ornate sugar skulls that inspired his coat decorations. The colours used represent many elements of the Dia de los Muertos: pink for joy and celebration, purple for grief, white for purity and hope, and orange and yellow for the sun and marigolds (the flower of the dead). This limited edition model has 'Calavera 2017' written on his belly. Original design by Lauren Hoeffer.
