The main theme is the Mexican celebration known as “Día de Los Muertos” or “Day of the Dead.” This work has been specially created for this Drop and for this Mexican celebration. This work is a celebration of life and of past ancestors who have graced us. Rey is proud and honored to have created this outstanding work.
“Oaxacan Comparsa” showcases a “Comparsa,” a traditional Mexican parade whereby people dress up as “Calaveras” to invite their deceased family members and make them feel at home during the Day of the Dead. The setting for this work is the church of Santo Domingo de Guzmán in Oaxaca. The main goal of this work is to capture the essence of a comparsa and the spirit of the Día de Los Muertos celebration in the state of Oaxaca.
