The Festival of the Days of the Dead or Dias de los Muertos culminates with a night long, candlelit vigil held at graveside in cemeteries throughout Mexico and is a favorite travel destination shared by tourists from around the world. Our stock photography shows village markets selling craft items related to the Day of the Dead Festival or Dias del Muerto Fiesta like candy skulls with children's names. Our travel images show one of the most famous Mexican craft markets that displays Days of the Dead crafts is in the Tarascon Indian town of Patzcuaro in the State of Michoacan where the Tarascon Indians sell their famous devil pottery during the Days of the Dead festival. Our stock photos of the Patzcuaro market show devil ceramics and pottery in the form of skeletons and fantastic demon animals. From these markets, which are popular with visiting tourists, we have stock photographs of the special bread called pan muerto, baked especially for the Day of the Dead Festival.
