From San Salvador Huixcolotla in Puebla State, Mexico, the 20+ cut-out figures in the post are of amusing scenes featuring skeletons (weddings, drinking, riding bikes and horses and bullfighting etc). They relate to the early November Mexican festival of the Day of the Dead (El Día de los Muertos). The paper figures were produced in the 1980s and come from the British Museum Prints Database.
