Details

Parading grandly with her picture hat, purse and parasol, Catrina steals the show. Armando Ramirez creates the iconic figurine from recycled auto parts and scrap metal.

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.

"Clever auto part sculpture"

I bought one of these pediatricians for my nephew who is a pediatrician. He loves it and told me it is very cute. I also bought one for my personal doctor. She loves hers, too. Armando Ramirez is very creative--a true artisan.. I have bought several of his sculptures and have loved every one of them and so have the peopleI have given them to.. I turned the Barber sculpture into a Retinologist giving an eye injection. When I look at them, they do not seem like they are made out of scrap auto parts. All I see is a delightful showpiece.

"She love it"

Luckily, I found this beauty surfing the web looking for a gift for my wife for our 6-year anniversary. THIS SCULPTURE IS PERFECT since I work in a metal recycling company and our first outings were to parks.
