Between the vision of Martin Quintanilla (pictured), and hard work of Jorge Gonzales, and the SRC members,  it all happened:

The Blue Mayan float mimicked the large painting in front of the Sculpture Resource Center, created by Martin Quintanilla and Joshua Woodhall (pictured in front):

We realized in 3 dimensions -- the giant skull, popsicle cart, and calavera in a bathtub from the above poster: 

Joshua silk screened a Mayan flag, with the letters SRC (for the Sculpture Resource Center), using a Maya internet translator:

Since there is no "R" in Maya, he created his own glyph :

The Blue Mayan float could not clear the trees on the sidewalk, and took a dive:

But recovered!

SRC contingent:

Two days earlier, Susan Kay Johnson (who founded the All Souls Procession), lead an intimate Day of the Dead procession to the Tucson Museum of Art (view playlist of these videos):
