Laurie Zuckerman visited the Charco Botanical Garden in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, back in 2006, and photographed this towering cross and sacred heart structure left over from the Holy Cross festival. It is made by the indigenous Indians in the state of Guanajuato from the Dasylirion plant, known as the cucharilla. In a future post, I will share more examples of this religious folk art used as cemetery wreath decorations in the cemeteries around Guanajuato. The plant dries well. The wreath I bought is still holding up well, and I have used it in several Day of the Dead shrines.
