Human-shaped pan de muerto made by master artist Maria Salazar.  Pan de muerto ("bread of the dead") is one of the most central elements in celebrating Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), a Mexican holiday which honors deceased friends and family.  Maria is a current master artist in ACTA's Apprenticeship Program, with her daughter and apprentice Brisa Chacon.  Photo courtesy of Maria Salazar, 2013
