Since ancient times, many mesoamerican and south american cultures celebrated on a specific day the memory of family members who passed away and left this world. This was mainly to keep them alive in their minds.
The Aztecs had a special conception of the after life, they had different layers of Upper and Lower worlds were, depending on the way a person dies, they will remain for eternity.
If a person were to die drown or struck by lightning you would go to the Tlalocan, the place of the Lord of the Rain: Tlaloc.
Calixto Robles invited a group of artists to participate on the 5th Annual Day of the Dead Exhibit at Puerto Alegre.
Come join us for a special celebration on Tuesday October 30th from 3pm til 5pm!
