These cushion covers are dramatic and beautiful - each featuring a female face with make up in the tradition of Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead).
The Día de los Muertos is a Mexican festival which celebrates the lives of those who have passed on. A key element is the make up that participants wear to celebrate the festival - darkening out their eye sockets, painting a full set of teeth, using swirls and motifs.
Skulls are a key theme of the Day of the Dead, symbolic of death, and flowers are also a key theme, symbolizing the beauty and transience of life.
Within these cushion cover designs the Day of the Dead theme is adapted to feature purple or red eye sockets, darkened noses - but these female faces are very much alive. Very artistic and beautiful.
These cushion covers are also practical. Easily removed and washable - and a gorgeous addition to any room!
