Cult Of Saint Death

In South America they believe that Santa Muerte (Saint Death) will visit you one day and strangely will take the form of a female dressed up to the nines.

The tradition is an age old mix of cultural rituals with some pagan, supernatural, black magic and an odd Catholic saint thrown in for good measure.

With this South American tradition as well as apparent salvation and safe passage to the other side, it also provides colourful and stunning images full of grinning skeletons in satin and pears. Enjoy le macabre.
