Barro Negro Calavera Skull
Barro Negro (black clay) dates back to 500 BC and was a traditional craft of the Zapotecs and Mixtecs of the central valleys of Oaxaca. The tradition continues today, just about an hour south of Oaxaca City in the town of San Bortolo Coyetepec. This is where Doña Esther Real and her family mix the unique clay that comes from their fields, mold it into forms and hand-cut beautiful designs into them. MyCajita’s Barro Negro Calavera is a beautiful showpiece, featuring a flower and braid with intricate floral carvings on the skull and unique face carvings to mimic the traditional face painting of Dia de los Muertos
Barro Negro Copalero, Velero, Salero
These hand-made pieces were influenced by pottery that comes from the 1st Monte Albon period of Oaxaca. The native people were known as Zapotecas, and they celebrated this day by burning copal to purify the area, lighting a fire to help guide the souls, and using cal/salt to keep the souls pure during their visit. The alter set is made in the traditional Barro Negro method and has matching floral carvings
Hand stamped by artesanos from San Salvador Huixcolotla, Puebla. This 15ft long string of papel picado can be hung above or around your ofrenda, with varied colored panels and scenes of Dia de los Muertos. It’s said that when the Papel Picado moves, it’s because our loved ones have entered the room.
Cempasuchil & Sugar Skull Tea Lights
Amor y Flor has put a lot of love into these candles. Scented in the traditional flower of Dia de los Muertos, the cempasuchil (marigold) flower can be seen and smelled throughout the streets of Mexico during this celebration.
Copal Virgin, Rock Salt, Charcoal
Copal is the resin/sap that comes from the tree and has been used for centuries in events and ceremonies as a way to cleanse the location, person, or event. Use the included self-burning coal to light the Copal and allow its sweet smell to cleanse your house. The Rock Salt is said to keep the soul pure while it is visiting us.
