I come here to explain why I chose the theme " Sugar Skull " and " Santa muerte " :

The prime contractor 'soulartware' type its not on google, I invite you to visit his site, it is frankly a visit ...

[u][i][b]Why not an airbrush and pinstripe : [/b][/i][/u]

I would not see on the Mini which this around today, the pinstripe.
Not that I'm far from it denigrates the pinstripe but not to my taste.
That's why I turned to a new trend that a hit in Spain and Mexico: 'Sugar Skull'.

[u][i][b]Small info about this culture : [/b][/i][/u]

The Aztecs saw death as a continuation of life. To honor the dead, they believe, came back to visit later this year, they were a party where they showed off the skulls. A custom that the Spanish have associated with the Christian feast of All Saints.

Today, Mexico, El Dia de los Muertos is a celebration of six days, from October 30 to November 2, during which families visit cemeteries and parades fill the streets. The skeleton is an omnipresent figure in the parades but also in the sweets made for the occasion. Including skulls sweet (Alfenas) to which the Mexican Sugar site <Skull est dédié.
 
[u][i][b]Why do black roses : [/b][/i][/u]

I think the black rose is the most beautiful roses ...
When you take a black rose in hand, the reflections in the pétalles are like a mirror ball filled with thousands of colors and remains for me, a classy flower.

[u][i][b]The text on the bootlid : [/b][/i][/u]

'Live your dreams instead of dreaming your life' text written in Spanish to stay in the context of the airbrush.
It is a vision of my life choices today after crossing a busy year between OPERATON, chemotherapy and radiotherapy of my wife.
You see life differently after this ...
 
Here is a sticker that I stuck to my windshield in respect to my wife for her breast cancer.

She is in total remission now.

" Santa Muerte "

Mexicans traditionally worship of local saints such as the Virgin of Guadeloupe and the peasant Juan Diego, but in recent years, a new 'holy', not really Catholic, invited in the rites and prayers of many Mexicans: Santa Muerte, or Holy Death.

Death has always had an important place in Mexican popular culture. The skull, far from being a macabre symbol is festive, and Mexicans offered sweet pastries in the shape of the skull the day after All Saints.
 
But recently, death was established as a icon in makeshift chapels across the country. Pilgrims come here to deposit offerings (such as flowers, wedding dresses, and even cigars) in exchange for his protection and support.

The Catholic Church strongly condemns such practices, calling them 'devil worship'. In 2009, it ruled that any prayer to Santa Muerte was a sin.

The Mexican government refused to grant the cult status of official religion, and followers of Santa Muerte is often treated as law-breakers and drug traffickers.

Despite this, popular devotion to the Blessed macabre continues to grow.
