Reminiscent of the colourful calaveras of the Mexican Day of the Dead, this incense burner has space for both cones and sticks of incense, ensuring that you can please the spirits of the dead with any scent you (or they) choose. Emblazoned with violet flowers, this black human skull has creeping green vines growing around it, symbolising life being reborn from death. The eyes are highlighted in yellow that matches the pollen of the flowers, and the teeth are a deep purple for an additional splash of colour. The vines and flower motif continues down the side of the burner, which is hand-painted and cast in high-quality resin.
