Skeletina the Chanteuse

Skeletina the Chanteuse 

Skeletina was a chanteuse in the time of  Toulous Lautrec.  
(You may have seen her in some of his artworks.)

One night, while drinking champagne from her slipper...

...she lost her balance and fell.

She hit her head on the cafe table upon which she was standing...

.....and tumbled to the floor as a Can Can played on.

The waiters tried, in vain, to minister to her injuries, but they were, alas, fatal.

Now Skeletina sings no more in the dance halls of Paris.

Instead she is the lead vocal singer for many a Day of the Dead celebration.
You can find her on etsy.
