(MENAFN) Mexico’s Delegation in Turkey remembered the Day of the Dead, a Mexican habit to think of people who are no longer with us.
Diplomat Jose Luis Martinez commented in his speech that the Day of the Dead tradition can be found in Mexican Pre-Hispanic people, while stressing on the importance of this day.
But, Martinez affirmed that the ironic skeletons imagery has been initiated by lithographer Jose Guadalupe Posada, who consumed the skeletons to mock the traditional elites and the rich.
Martinez added that it is "dedicated to Ambassadors Alfonso and Mauricio de Maria y Campos and Mexican composer Armando Manzanero, who passed away this year" mentioning the altar in the delegation.
