Egungun Skulls

Buddhists incorporated skull depictions into malas [rosary] to represent the ephemeral quality of life, they help reflect the inevitability of death and the necessity of embracing life with compassion.
The skull imagery is also found in Mexican culture, such as Santa Muerte. Santa Muerte is a sacred figure in Mexico, an amalgamation of Catholic and Aztec religion. Dia de los Muertos is a day of observance to remember the friends and family that have died. In Lucumi tradition, it is believed that God commissions ancestors to help guide an individual from the day they are born to help them fulfill there destiny. These ancestors are called Egungun, which translate in Yoruba dialect
as bone.
