SKULL INCENSE HOLDER For Day of The Dead, Ritual & Samhain.
The skull has always held a sacred energy to it, becoming worshipped & acknowledged as the house of our thoughts, beliefs, memories & wisdom. The skull can be viewed as a symbol of life & death, reminding us that our time here in the physical is not forever & that we must take in & enjoy all that we can before we drift back into the spirit realm. With this, centuries of people hold countless stories of 'the dead,' coming back to say hello & offer protection & guidance to us still here in the physical realm. This belief that spirits of our loved one's return is so strong, that it often is celebrated among many cultures & religions. Death is never the end, just a transition. The skull is a powerful symbol of that transition we must all make at some point.
