Regular price $214.89

Santa Maria – Dia de Muertos halo designed for the Virgin Mary while celebrating the holiday. Atop the long blue glittering veil is a flower crown of the traditional cempazuchitl, and a halo of the twelve shining rays of stars representing the twelve apostles from the center of a glittering golden cross encrusted with twinkling red crystals all trimmed in intricate filigree halo much like the papel picado. A true to cultural blend of both Catholicism and Dia de Muertos!

Please note the batteries are not included for the string of stars.
