The story behind the skull designs in Toonymania’s products
By Mrs. Toony
As a Mexican, Pablo Azar aka Mr. Toony, the symbol of the skulls has a great meaning and this is why we celebrate the Day of the Dead every 1th of november, to pay tribute to our deceased loved ones and remember that when we die, we do not stay there; we transcend to heaven together with God.
It is a tradition that arrived in the 16th century when the Spanish conquerors practiced a ritual from medieval Christian Europe that consisted of setting a table with flowers and food to feed those who had already left.
Nowadays, altars are created in this celebration to honor our ancestors, with commemorative objects like flowers, even food and lots of candles. Every skull pattern in our designs is influenced by the beauty of remembering those that are no longer with us.
Here’s Mrs. Toony aka Ana Carolina Grajales using our Mexican Catrina face mask, and Mr. Toony aka Pablo Azar with his Skull face mask!
So now, when you order your next skull pattern product, you know the inspiration behind every single one of them. We just love to make products that tell a story!
