>>> Do you know why they used skeletons?

This neighborhood has a large Mexican-American population, with a long tradition of art that makes use of skull and skeleton imagery. Some of these motifs date back to the Aztecs and they're part of everyday life as well as during the Day of the Dead celebrations.
