Day of the Dead (Ancient Guardians)
A Day of the Dead celebration with quetzal plumage and rose and dahlia flowers. A nod to the Mexica (Aztec) god, Huitzilopochtli. It was believed fallen warriors after forming part of the sun's bright hues, would return as hummingbirds forever. I thought they would add to the composition and make great observers and guardians for this celebration. Awesomely detailed calavera and ancient relics illustration!
