This breathtaking catrina sculpture is the original creation of Luis Morales in Mexico. The origin of the catrina is in artist José Guadalupe Posada's satirical etchings of "La Calavera Catrina" in 1910, which mocked the pretensions and aspirations of Mexican high society. Crafted from ceramic, the skeletal figure is dressed to the nines, including a feathered Quetzalcóatl boa draped around her neck. Earrings and an elabourate picture hat complete her ensemble.

"Unbelievable quality every step of the way!"

My sister wanted a Day of Dead Lady, so I had different quality to choose from. Well, La Catrina Espinoza arrived today and I am stilled stunned at the quality of packing! It was amazingly solid. And the figure herself? She is nothing short of magnificent from top to bottom. I give this company and the artisans a million stars. This company is the real deal! Thank you! My sister has no idea she is getting an absolute work of art

"A beautiful Catrina."

This is a very nice Catrina. What impressed me the most is that given my past experience with this type of ceramics, I was hesitant to order it just because I was afraid it may not make it on the shipping. Well, I had to use my old dissection skills to unwrap it. The packaging was superbly done. Now to the piece, it is as beautiful as it shows in the picture. It is elegant and genuinely coqueta.

"remembering those that came before"

I had such a hard time deciding on which 1 of these to pick from!! I picked Francesca because she is holding a platter to feed her family . The detail is amazing and the painting is so exact. I will probably need to order another 1 from this artist because I was so impressed with the talent it was made with.
