A shadowbox tribute to Carolyn Jones (Apr 28, 1930 – Aug 3, 1983) who played Morticia in the black and white TV show, The Addams Family.
The illustrations (Morticia and the candles) are prints of my original drawings. The flowers on the altar are paper.
Ofendas are an essential part of the Day of the Dead celebrations. The word ofrenda means offering in Spanish. They are also called altares or altars, but they are not for worshiping. Ofrendas are set up to remember and honor the memory of their ancestors. I have taken to making these ofrendas for iconic actors and famous people who inspire me.
