In Russia Halloween is celebrated too with this special miniature. Santa Muerte in 32mm, sold for 12.50 € at Cadwallon.

Russia? I don't think so.

Santa Muerte is a quasi-goddess "saint" from Mexican Catholicism.

The miniature depicts La (calavera) Catrina, rather than Santa Muerte. She is also a Mexican tradition, albeit as part of pop culture, rather than religion … And she symbolises día de muertos (the day of the dead), NOT Halloween.
