…Sugar Skulls are delicious?

Mexican Sugar Skull

The Sugar Skull is a common symbol of the Day of the Dead; a Mexican celebration that honors and celebrates the lives of the deceased and the continuation of life.

Made with sugar and decorated with royal icing, foil, beads, feathers and sequins, sugar skulls are gifts that are given to both the living and the dead. Plus, they make great additions to a tea party or your morning coffee.

If you’d like to make your own, then check out the tutorial, as well as MexicanSugarSkull.com, a site that is full of information about the sugar skull.

…Laura doesn’t like Damien Hurst?

Damien Hurst Skull Prank

If you’re artist Damien Hirst and you’ve just completed the most expensive piece of contemporary art the world has ever seen in the form of a skull covered with more than 8,000 diamonds (valued at up to $100 million), it can’t come as a surprise that some are going to be less than thrilled about it.

An artist named Laura was one of those people, and decided to show her feelings by creating a replica of the skull, covering it in 6,522 Swarovski crystals, and then dumping it behind the gallery where the original was being shown during the middle of the night. Trashy art indeed.
