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.

"sport fan of soccer"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I am going give this as a birthday present to my nephew who since a very young age played this sport and was even in a special soccer team and traveled to Germany among other places. He now lives in the U.S. but his love for soccer has become stronger. This is the fourth sculpture I have purchased from Armando Ramirez; they are in a special place at the home. (Two were for my husband, the cyclist and the photographer. His true passions. He has them on his desk and since he works from home (uses zoom) others see them and are amazed. He says thank you, Ramiro!.
