Dödengrottan!

The Death Cave. In Sweden we have All Saints' Day (allhelgonadagen), but in some countries they have The Day of the Dead, Dia De Los Muertos (please correct my grammar if it's wrong), and it seems to be more of a real celebration, more fun, color and candy. So the swedish way to take a small trip to the church yard (in best cases) and the lightning of candles (which I think we do on All Saints' Eve), nothing more, seems, well, tiny.

 

So, this is my celebration for the dead. My ancestors, our dead cats and all things that have to die to bring new life in nature (I'm very grateful of that, I'm a vegan). This is my interpretation of Dia De Los Muertos, this is my way of remembering both the dead and that I'm not immortal. We must remember to live when we're alive.

 

The cave is about 12 cm wide (with flowers) and 10 cm high (also with flowers).
