Santa Muerte T-shirt (Black Print)

Santa Muerte T-shirt (Black Print)

Santa Muerte is said to have evolved from the fusing of Spanish Catholic mythology and indigenous Mexican paganism. In Europe, Death and other personifications of death have been worshipped in times of great wars or epidemics when many lives were lost. The Aztecs worshipped Mictecacihuatl, a female skeleton that personified death. Despite the Catholic Church and the Mexican government’s official rejection of the Santa Muerte cult in Mexico, there’s no denying the popularity and fervor of her followers.

Drug houses have been found with shrines to Santa Muerte. In 2012, eight people were arrested for performing human sacrifice in her honour. Many cartels paint themselves as messiahs for Santa Muerte, giving their foot soldiers religious reasons to follow them. Despite a reputation as a death cult for criminals and drug traffickers, Santa Muerte has  taken on an increasingly prominent and polemic role in the Day of the Dead festivities. Also known as the Bony Lady, the followers of Santa Muerte say her appeal lies in her non-judgemental nature and her supposed ability to grant wishes in return for pledges or offerings.
