Cu Chulainn

Great Celtic hero. The spear is made from the bones of a sea-serpent apparently.

The text reads, "Though you're not here, I can still read your name on last year's sugar skull." (Sugar skulls are given on the Day of the Dead festival in Mexico. We got ours when we visited the Mexican Museum of Fine Arts, which all Chicagoans should visit; it's one of the best museums in the city.)
