Mexican Doll Skull
Reference : APOUPEMORT
To Mexicans, death is a friend.
Mexicans have a taste for morbidity, a fascination with death that we see in many areas and especially in folk art. Often the colors are bright. In Mexico, death is one thing we never seem to take seriously.
This death with the head of a skull is made in coconut, seeds, wood and tissue.
For the coconut shell to become a product, Mexican artisans soak it in water for ten to fifteen minutes or until they have absorbed the maximum amount of water. Then, the outside of the shell is scraped and cleaned with a knife or a spoon. Later, the shell is sanded until its surface becomes absolutely smooth and shiny.

The creativity of mexican artisans in making crafts out of coconuts is quite surprising.

When the shell is ready, they paint it like jaguars, sirens, mariachis, dolls, dancers and any other typical figure. Then, the assembly of the handicraft begins, adding tissue for the body, and wood and natural seeds for the head.

Mexican artisans are so skillful they seem to make use of magic use in manufacturing their products. Not only do they surprise everyone with new designs every day; they also combine coconuts with other natural materials like wood, leather, ceramics, seeds, tagua, and silver. By doing so, they add a new dimension to their products.
