"Tierra" for Sugar Skull Bakers 2015

Daily Top 3 - Nov 03, 2015

“Tierra"
I decided to create a Sugar Skull this year that represented me, my life as a Mediium and my vision as an artist, therefore I’ve entitled this piece “Tierra"- which means Earth in Spanish. Cows are symbolically very connected to Nature- to Earth, and to reproduction and fertility. The animal totem represents a sign of female power- more specifically childbirth and motherhood. There is no greater gift for me than being a Mother. So I chose to represent this through my Boho Chic Version of a Sugar Cow Skull. The feathers were important to add as they are also special to me. They represent Spirit and what the Day of the Dead is all about; honouring our loved ones and celebrating them and their lives. I dedicate this piece to all those who have lost their mothers. We honour them today and always. ~ Daniela xo
