Minerva explodes in burst of orange

With the November 1 and 2 Day of the Dead commemorations approaching, a ring of marigolds (known in Spanish by their Nahuatl moniker cempazuchitl) adorns Guadalajara’s iconic Minerva traffic circle.


Petals of the traditional Dia de los Muertos flower are often laid out on the ground to form a path leading to altars to the deceased. Marigolds may also be strung in garlands, fixed onto a wreath or cross-shaped base, or arranged in clay pots to adorn an offering.
