Great shirt -- I've liked a lot of the other Halloween-esque shirts but was afraid I wouldn't wear them after the holiday. I will definitely wear this beyond October.

I agree. Day of the Dead is big where I live. Some of the elementary schools even celebrate it. It's all about dressing up skeletons.
I'm in for one.

Selling out any minute now.. It's a really nice shirt but just not my thing. It's too religious in nature.. and I am not :P

If you dont like it dont buy it. Even more so, where on woot does it say that you have the right not to be offended. I think its a nice design. Dark? yes. But targeted at the right market it sells, Woot being a company and all I say go for what sells. Keep it up woot!

Woah, woah, cut gte037p some slack here. He/she was respectful in what was said. I can see why this would rub religious people the wrong way. I am just annoyed it was sold out by the time I came back to snag one.

Perhaps I was wrong about that, I am not very familiar with the celebration. That being said, I have never really seen the Virgin Mary depicted as a skeleton in the many pieces of artwork that accompany Day of the Dead. Is she typically in there?

My understanding is that Mary is considered to have been assumed into heaven, body and soul, thus she would never be depicted as a skeleton. This would be offensive to those that have that conviction.

It rubs me the wrong way when people are so ignorant. The image doesn't have to be offensive. It depends on how you interpret it -- it's not a black or white/blasphemy or exaltation piece. It's art. Día de los Muertos is a celebration of the dead, and, like it or not, Virgin Mary is dead. Celebrate her giving birth to the Son of God -- it's all symbolic of the continuance of life after death.

or you can wear the shirt with blasphemous intent, like me. I do so love dead virgins.

I'm super bummed it was sold out by the time I got my credit card info in . I wonder if Jamie Toon would be willing to reprint Best shirt on here in a while. Why are there bible bangers up at this hour?

And the V of G is an icon of the V of M. Virgin of Guadalupe, Virgin Mary, La Madonna... essentially all the same thing, right?
