Silver Skull Vinaigrette, Europe 1701-1900: Used to hold strong smelling substances to be sniffed via tiny holes when the user was passing a particularly smelly area.

This ofrenda was constructed in remembrance of women killed along the Texas/Mexico border. There is one sugar skull for every woman who has been found dead, and this symbolism is strong, powerful and controversial. Each skull has the name of one woman killed up until 2006 in the Juarez, Mexico area. Unfortunately little has been done to stop the carnage. The installation was presented at Dia de los Muertos in 2006 at the National Hispanic Cultural Center in Albuquerque.
