Death is looked upon differently by many cultures. One of the stranger and more macabre (at least to look at) is the Mexican tradition of Santa Muerte - or Saint Death if you are an English speaker. She is also known as Dona Sebastiana and is a religious figure that is the result of a mish-mash of several cultures. Paganism and Catholicism come head on to produce a remarkable hybrid of contemporary religiosity and supernaturalism.
