Japanese Inspired Dia De Los Muertos Sugar Skulls From Jonathan Koshi



El Dia De Los Muertos is right around the corner. This is the day in which we celebrate the memory of our dearly departed by putting up altars in our houses and having picnics on our ancestor’s remains. One of the main features of a traditional altar is the sugar skull. Basically, it’s a highly decorated diabetes inducing skull made of sugar and candy. We’ve featured the sugar skull art of Japanese-American artist Jonathan Koshi before, and now he’s come out with some new designs for sale in time for this year’s day of the dead. They reflect some of the icons from his Japanese childhood rendered in the form of sugar skulls. That’s called a cultural hybrid!
