Each flag is 6.5 inches long
The length of 8 flags (give or take how they're arranged on the rope) = approx 4.5 ft 

::: length measurement not including the rope ends 

Flag sets include: a grey cotton rope is threaded through the flags with loops tied on the end to hang. These are very lightweight, all it takes indoors is a thumbtack. They can be re-threaded onto a rope or cording you prefer- the flags are sewn in a row to help them stay together during strong wind!

The fabric is polyester chiffon, a feather-light textile that is semi-transparent and tough. I left the edges raw to keep the lightness of the flags, but also to naturally fray over time. The inner edges are treated with a clear "fray stopper" so that the fraying doesn't get too out of hand. The flags can be hung indoors or outside- even in rain and sun. The filmy polyester dries out with just a breath of a breeze. 

I designed these flags using images of hand-painted photographs I've done in years past. The originals are portraits I shot on medium format film, printed in a traditional darkroom, then hand painted with oils to cover the body and background bits with a skeleton. The end result is a life-like skeleton positioned as if still in a live state-- which is a common theme in the Mexican holiday, Dia de los Muertos. The dead are celebrated for their lives, not just mourned for their deaths.
