Details

Turned out in her Sunday finest including picture hat and parasol, this catrina from Luis Morales will add color and culture to any place she is displayed. Formed by hand from clay, her ostentatious ensemble is carefully painted in aqua, blue, purple and silver hues. The elegant figure is based on a satirical etching created by Mexican artist José Guadalupe Posada around 1910-1913. With his etching, Posada poked fun at those Mexican natives who tried to emulate the fashion and habits of the European aristocracy. Today, la Catrina has become the instantly recognizable icon of Día de los Muertos (Mexico's Day of the Dead).

"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.

"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

"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.
