Santa Muerte is a female folk saint celebrated mostly in Mexico and the Southwest. Her name means Holy or Sacred Death. This Santa Muerte Statue depicts a feminine skeletal figure, wearing a long robe and holding a scythe and a globe. She is associated with healing, protection, and safe delivery to the afterlife. Crafted from cold cast bronze, she has been hand-painted to bring out the intricate details, including the pink roses forming a circlet over her veil. Two braids frame her skeletal face. An owl sits at her shoulder. Intricate knotwork trims her robes. She stands on a base with skeletons reaching up to touch her robes. The origins of Santa Muerte are most likely a mixture of Mesoamerican and Spanish Catholic beliefs. She has many names, and has become one of Mexicos most popular saints.
