Details

Grinning Catrina frolics in a decoupage collage as Ana María González commemorates Day of the Dead with a colorful treasure chest. The word catrina is widely used in Mexico to mean "elegant and polished." Lithographer Jose Guadalupe Posadas created the skeletal Catrina, who was later immortalized in the murals of Diego Rivera. In Mexico, the Day of the Dead is about celebrating the life of those who have passed, rather than mourning their deaths. People visit graves with offerings, including bright floral displays.

Part of NOVICA's Dia de los Muertos collection.

"Tequila!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Another wonderful art piece from Ana. The design is gorgeous, especially the couple on the lid celebrating with a bottle of tequila. The colors are so vibrant as is the gold edging on the lid and base. I bought it mostly for show, but the drawer and lid compartment are great for keeping track of small items. Great pine scent from the wood!

"As beautiful as it looks"

Amazing box. Just as pictured. First delivery was stolen, we believe. Novicas customer service was incredible. They sent another box and I had it within a week. That was above and beyond in my eyes. Another reason I love this company!
