The red stands are mannequins, and there are pictures all over of victims of violence (not just narco violence). The orange flowers are cempazuchitl, or marigolds, the flor de la muertos in Mecixan day of the dead celebrations. This is one of the most unique ofrendas, or altars, paying homage to the deceased, and I just happened upon it in Queretaro. I was there for a conference on the history of the bicentennial of Mexican Independence/ centennial of the revolution.

I was stuck between Color, Metamorphosis, and Peace at the Lake. vaberella Nov 2012 #1
