24 Cards with Book, Spanish Only Santa Muerte is the Mexican interpretation of our own beloved Angel of Death. She is a deity or saint-like figure worshiped and venerated in Mexico, a syncretism between Mesoamerican and Catholic beliefs. The name literally translates to “Saint Death.” Mexican culture since pre-Hispanic times has always maintained a certain reverence towards Death, which can be seen in the widespread Mexican celebration of the Day of the Dead. Santa Muerte generally appears as a skeletal figure, clad in a long robe and carrying one or more objects, usually a scythe and a globe. As the worship of this deity was clandestine until recently, most prayers and other rites were done privately in the home. However, for the past ten years or so, worship has become more public, especially in Mexico City. The number of believers in the deity has grown over the past ten to twenty years, to approximately two million followers in Mexico and has crossed the border into Mexican communities in the United States.
