British Museum: Day Of The Dead, Mexican Festival

These photographs were taken at the British Museum where a special Mexican Festival honouring the dead was being celebrated. It is tradition for people to make paper mache skeletons and examples of these are shown above. They are beautifully crafted and have got a great character and personality about them whilst their lively form and composition combined with vivid colour make them entertaining to look at.
