San La Muerte

San La Muerte Cover
San La Muerte (Saint Death) is a religious figure who is venerated in Paraguay, the Northeast of Argentina and southern Brazil. As the result of internal migration in Argentina since the 1960s veneration of San La Muerte has been extended to Greater Buenos Aires and the national prison system as well. Saint Death is depicted as a male skeleton figure usually holding a scythe. Although the Catholic Church has attacked the cult of Saint Death as a pagan tradition contrary to the Christian belief of Christ defeating death, many people consider the veneration of San La Muerte as being part of their Catholic faith. Although the rituals connected to and powers ascribed to San La Muerte are very similar San La Muerte should not be confused with the similar religious figure Santa Muerte that is venerated in Mexico and parts of the US, but is typically depicted by a female skeleton figure.
