Details

This artisan-crafted papier mache statuette of La Catrina makes for a truly out-of-the-ordinary home accent. Presented by Jose and Ruby, artisans from Tonalá in the state of Jalisco, the figure has a ceramic face with a red mouth and black nose and eyes all painted by hand. Political cartoonist José Guadalupe Posada first drew La Catrina as a critique of Mexicans who wished to appear European by donning the overly ornate dress of the Edwardian era. Since then the figure's clothing has evolved to include many styles, and today there are Catrinas wearing long and short dresses and sporting all manner of head coverings. Jose and Ruby have chosen a black and white color scheme for this rendering of the iconic skeleton figure. Her dress is accented with a ruffled apron tied with a large bow; she carries a flower, and another adorns her upswept hairstyle.
