A venerated folk figure in Mexican culture, the saint of death is said to have her roots in the Aztec history as Mictecacihuatl.
Despite condemnation from the Catholic Church, the cult of Santa Muerte has grown in a syncretism between indigenous Mesoamerican and Spanish beliefs and practices.
A saint for sinners, and an ancient figure honored on the Dia de los Muertos. A reminder that the old gods are not dead, but sleeping, waiting to be awakened through the prayers and offerings of the faithful.
Pay homage to the Lady of Death with this set of 5 colorful votive skull candles (also available in white and black). Perfect for burning at her altar, and to honor the dead on Dia de los Muertos.
Made from soy, with cotton wicking and eco-friendly dye, these candles are zinc and lead free.
