On November 1st and 2nd, colourful kites take flight over Santiago Sacatepéquez as hundreds of people gather at the local cemetery to honour their departed. The kites are massive-some over 10 metres in diameter-and painted by hand. They’re strewn from the ground as the crowd watches them carry their various messages and beautiful imagery across the sky.
