This Marigold Mandala is in celebration of upcoming Dia De Los Muertos 💀

The Marigold is considered the official flower of the dead in Mexico and is an important part of Dia de los Muertos. They are placed on graves and altars during the celebration. Marigolds are said to attract the good spirits (ancestors) and block negativity or bad spirits.

All of the marigolds harvested in our family garden are given to Anchal Project to make natural dye.
