This style of devotional artwork, known as Retablo in Spanish, features intricate hand paintings of Santa Muerte (a female folk saint version of The Grim Reaper) on the outside of each matchbox and a ceramic figure of her on the inside. The fascinating Santa Muerte is depicted here in red and robes holding a scythe in one hand and a set of scales in the other. She is distinguishable from The Grim Reaper by her depiction here with an owl, her messenger and a representation of her ability to find her way through the darkness.
Santa Muerte is generally considered to be outside of the Catholic Church's diaspora of saints and is often considered by scholars to have become popular as a result of the blending of elements from Christianity and indigenous, pre-Columbian religious ideas.
