Dia de Los Muertos

FullSizeRender-2Every year in Mexico families gather to honor their deceased ancestors in an event known as Dia de Los Muertos or Day of the Dead. The British Museum has come to life for the festivities with huge painted skulls and skeletons located in their atrium. These decorated bones are props used in the newest James Bond film, Spectre. The props, however, are not the only way the museum is celebrating the festival. There will be various activities, talks and works of art all dedicated to the Day of the Dead.
