Clad in a purple and yellow gown and matching hat and holding a bouquet of flowers, this catrina sculpture from Rita Sandoval has a prideful air. The artisan's attention to detail in the statuette make it a collectible to treasure.
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 of 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.
