Maybe the S.F. Giants didn't do as well this year, as they did last, when they won the World Series.  However, you can still "Fear The Beard" with this one of a kind calaca. Featuring 2 players, one with beard and a Giants jersey.  This will blow the mind of your favorite baseball fan.  Limited quantities.  We also have a few with "Humboldt Crabs" hats/colors.  

Celebrate Day of the Dead with a handmade clay “calaca.” These are figures of a skull or skeleton (usually human) commonly used for decoration during the Day of the Dead festival. Tracing their origins from Aztec imagery, our calacas are made by Francisco Chacon and Maria Delores, who are 3rd generation calaca makers living in Xoxocotlan, Mexico.  No two are exactly alike.

As with other aspects of the Day of the Dead festival, calacas are generally depicted as joyous rather than mournful figures. They are often shown wearing festive clothing, dancing, and playing musical instruments to indicate a happy afterlife. This draws on the Mexican belief that no dead soul likes to be thought of sadly, and that death should be a joyous occasion.

The Giants calaca measures 3 in. tall x 3.5 wide x 2.5 in. deep.
