Santa Muerte's image is a skeleton dressed in robes. She grants requests that some might be afraid to ask of more traditional saints. Her image can be found on everything from tattoos to key chains. More often than not, marijuana instead of incense is blown her way.
Your curiosity is peaked, yes? Read the Wikipedia posting and then check out National Geographic's article "Vatican in a Bind about Santa Muerte" or NPR's story "Saint Death Now Revered on Both Sides of U.S. - Mexico Frontier." Actually, just Google the heck out of her. It's all interesting.
If you have time left after doing all that, hop over to Oeroeboeroe on Etsy for some embroidered images of Santa Muerte.
Meander through the rest of the shop too!
