Dia De Los Muertos: Barriletes Gigantes

I’m thinking about lost loved ones today and reading about Dia De Los Muertos traditions, one of the most beautiful I’ve come across is the barriletes gigantes of Guatemala, which are huge, gorgeous handmade kites that are flown high above the cemeteries as a symbolic link between the living and the dead:

Stunning! Seeing symbols of loving connection between the living and the dead does my heart good lately.
