Today we show you the completed collaborative mural that Herbert Baglione and Dr. Lakra worked on in Oaxaca, Mexico last week in conjunction with the Day of the Dead festivities. As you can see in the final mural, the artist took the Day of the Dead celebration and its themes of celebrating those passed away and applied to each of their styles.
