Details

Elegantly clad in a red and gold gown, La Catrina lifts the edge of her lacy, broad-brimmed hat. Maria Lozano in Mexico crafts the wonderful skeletal figurine from papier mache, painting it carefully by hand. Lozano designs the figurine after the original "La Calavera Catrina", 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.

"Magic"

I truly love this magical axolotl creature. And that it stays true to the papier mache alebrije. This is my second sculpture from Mariana.

"Every one loves my 2020 Frog! So creative"

Thank you, Marina. This little frog is absolutely ADORABLE! A must have treasure. This was the perfect Christmas present for me -- from my cats (they buy such wonderful things for me). Right now, my frog is standing proudly on the mantle -- but will eventually hang from the ceiling in my office so I can see him more. I assure you, you will not be disappointed if you buy this for yourself -- or for a friend who just needs to smile.
