La Calavera is the smiling skull mounted on crossbones pictured in the number forty-two (42) card in the traditional bingo-like Mexican board game Loteria. The popular game has a deck of 54 picture cards, which is used to draw a picture card that will be the basis to find a corresponding matching picture in the randomly created 4 x 4 grid of pictures known as the tabla. The first to complete a previously agreed pattern on the tabla will shout “Loteria” and will be declared winner of the particular round of the game.

La Calavera could be a statement that death is also a common thing. He wears a long-sleeved black T-shirt, black stretch pants, a skull bone mask, jumbo plastic human crossbones, and a giant Loteria card.

About La Calavera

The traditional verse associated with the La Calavera card is simply, “As I passed by the cemetery, I found a skull.” Though a bit shocking or unpleasant, a skull is something that is really expected to be found in a cemetery. Thus, when the card comes up in fortune-telling, it could mean that a situation is exactly where it is supposed to be.
