About LA Calaca Comelona:

La Calaca Comelona or "The Hungry Skeleton" celebrates the traditional spirit of the dead that playfully makes its way into Mexican culture. Since Pre-Columbian times, Mexican culture has accepted Death as coexisting with Life, rather than something to view with horror. Jose Guadalupe Posadas, a Mexican artist from the 19th century, embodies this cultural idea with his potrayal of skeletons or "calacas" who actively inhabit all walks of life. Patricia Cabrera, chef and owner, started la Calaca Comelona to bring truly Mexican food to the Portland area, along the art of great artists like Posadas and Frida Kahlo.
