Everyone just loves skulls!

Here at INCT a lot of our designs involve skulls, we are not sure why we are drawn to these so have decided to do some research into the different meanings of ‘the skull’ and we thought it would be a good idea to share it with you!

Candy, Skull, Logo, Left, Chest, Mexican,

Skulls have different meanings to different people some people see them as negative or evil where as some people see them the complete opposite.

Here are some of the many different symbols that a skull could represent:

– Protection

-Strength

-Power

-Fearlessness

-Wisdom and Guidance

-Over coming death

Hopefully these different meanings will give you different opinions on skulls ;)

One of our favorite tee’s is the candy skull

The candy skull originated from Mexico; day of the dead. They believe on midnight October 31st all the spirits of all the deceased children are allowed to reunite with their families for 24 hours and then on November 2, the spirits of the adults come down to enjoy the festivities that are prepared for them. Day of the Dead is a very expensive holiday for these self-sufficient, rural based, indigenous families. Many spend over two month’s income to honor their dead relatives. They believe that happy spirits will provide protection, good luck and wisdom to their families.

The skulls are often made from sugar cane, usually in one piece without flavoring although sometimes vanilla. They are decorated with  with lines of vegetable dye, commonly in green, blue, yellow or red colors. Other variations of edible skulls may be made of chocolate. although sometimes they can be made of clay which are then painted with metallic paint. The names of living people are commonly written on the foreheads and can be bought and given as gifts. The skulls may be eaten, or kept for a few days and then thrown away.
