  • Attached to this traditional weaving is an applique showing a jovial Calavera, a decorated Día de Muertos skull. She is surrounded by an infinity of colorful flowers that demarcate the threshold between life and death. She is free to move between these worlds as easily as the birds whose feathers adorn her. The feathers are gathered from birds flying around Portland.
