"Blue" is a beautiful Day of the Dead girl. She has bright blue hair and eyes, and orange makeup. Her hairpiece features traditional roses in orange and also Deaths head hawk moths, one of my favorite animals/insects. They are beautiful Creatures who have gotten a bad wrap, but they are harmless and very very interesting. Heres a little about them- " it's skull-and-crossbones markings and its ability to make quite an unexpected loud shrill, the Death's-head hawk moth has been an object of folklore, terror and persecution throughout history. Its sinister qualities have also given it it's Latin name (Acherontia atropos) Acheron is the metaphorical river of sorrow that flows deep down in the infernal regions; Atropos the eldest of the three fates, the one who severs the thread of life. The dust of it's wings was considered dangerous and it was believed that it was capable of blinding a man, if it came in contact with the eye! The hawk moth is also capable of emitting a high pitch shriek, thought to be used to ward off honey bees while it robs their honey from the hive. This shriek was thought to originate from a screaming, death-stricken child in Poland!" In my eyes though, they are just beautiful creatures. They do evoke the idea of spirits to my mind so it made perfect sense to me to pair them in this wonderful Day of the dead / dia de los muertos painting!
