Details

Elegantly dressed and carrying a parasol, this stunning catrina statuette epitomizes her kind. Jorge Escamilla of Mexico crafts the sculpture by hand using clay and steel wire. The artisan's attention to detail is remarkable.

The original "La Calavera Catrina" was a zinc etching created by the artist José Guadalupe Posada in Mexico around 1910. Posada created the character, a female skeleton with an elegant hat, as a satirical portrait to lampoon Mexican natives who aspired to European style and denied their own heritage. The catrina has since become an emblem of Mexico's Day of the Dead celebration and a popular folk art subject.

"Absolutely beautiful"

Item came very well packed but unfortunately on of the arms was broken. I was able to glue it . The colors are very bright and the quality of the details is amazing.
