Offrendas are most often created in honor of one’s ancestors or loved ones, and contain a number of traditional elements, many drawn from indigenous Mexican traditions: Crosses and other religious emblems, including statuettes of saints. Water, sacred to indigenous pre-Columbian cultures, and a symbol of baptism and new life in the Catholic church. Salt, a preservative and purifying agent. Copal, a native incense used by the Aztecs. Candles, whose light guides the dead. Flowers, particularly the Cempazúchitl, or flower of the dead- the marigold, sacred to Mictlantecuhtli, the Aztec god of the dead, they guide the spirits to their altars using their vibrant colors and scent, they also represent the fragility of life.
