A Sacrificial Centerpiece

Going to a local barbecue shack near by we had enough people to be seated in the secluded back room, which had only a single large table with this amazing and terrifying centerpiece. Luckily I was not seated directly facing the skull as it would make it a little more difficult to enjoy my brisket while looking into the empty sockets of the head of the animal which I am enjoying. Though very odd the centerpiece is rather fascinating, a horned skull, bleached and covered with wax from the many lit candles covering it while surrounded by veladoras, or prayer candles, and fresh flowers. It really gave the appearance of an alter honoring one of the animals which make barbecue possible.
