This paper mache sculpture of a human skeleton

Pátzcuaro in Mexico in November 1975. All Souls Day in the
Christian calendar, on 2 November, is widely celebrated in Mexico
as an occasion of remembrance for dead family and friends. Images
of skulls and skeletons in the form of toys and sweets are a common
