History of Sugar Skull Art
Sugar art was brought to the New World by Italian missionaries in the 17th century. . .Sugar skulls represented a departed soul, had the name written on the forehead and placed on the home ofrenda or gravestone to honor the return of a particular spirit. Sugar skull art reflects the folk art style of big happy smiles, colorful icing and sparkly tin and glittery adornments. Sugar skulls are labor intensive and made in very small batches in the homes of sugar skull makers. These wonderful artisans are disappearing as fabricated and imported candy skulls take their place. There is nothing as beautiful as a big, fancy, unusual sugar skull! –
