Mexican Tree of Life pottery traditionally depicts biblical scenes from the Garden of Eden. This cake topper is a miniature modern version intended for use in Day of the Dead celebrations, with motifs of birds, fruit, and flowers representing life and rebirth. The Day of the Dead, or Dia de los Muertos, is a holiday held throughout Mexico on All Saints' Day that combines Aztec and Spanish Catholic traditions. This day is a fantastic celebration of the lives of deceased ancestors and friends, filled with food, singing, dancing, and games. The deceased are believed to awaken to share in the festivities. Traditionally, families decorate tombs and build altars, or ofrendas, as an offering to the dead. The altars are piled with cempas�_�_chil (marigolds known as the flower of the dead), candles, the deceased's favorite foods, and skulls made of candy or clay.
