"Muerto Mary y Jesus" Altar


Another altar for your "Day of the Dead" pleasure! Last week was St. Teresa, this week I offer the Virgin Mary. I salvaged this ceramic statue and the vintage shelf she sits on. I just love rescuing old, unloved things, and giving them a fresh life!
Mary took hours of detailed hand painting, but I'm very pleased with the final result.:) This piece will be going up on eBay tonight at 7 p.m. central time. I hope she finds a loving home!
