Yesterday, I took a walk through a part of Tepoztlan I only visit every month or two. And lo, there were some new murals I’d not seen before, at a quiet intersection. I assume they were done by local artists, of which there are many, for the Days of the Dead, although there are obvious non-Mexican influences in them.
I love the street art here, and so I’m reproducing a selection of the finest work. No claims, naturally, are made to ownership of the images. I’m not even sure how copyright works in relation to murals in public places, but I’m happy to post these photos of my favourites. Some of the artists’ signatures are visible in the photos.
This brooding lady of the night, complete with cartridge belts, evokes those who fought and fell in the 1910 Revolution.
A little night music, perhaps? A skeletal trombonist.
The Lord of Mictlan, I believe: the Land of the Dead.
Skull and candle on a wall.
A skeletal figure partying the night away.
More ex-people partying.
