Details

This delightful sculpture is the original creation of Morneo in Mexico. Painted in the colorful folk art style of alebrijes, the sculpture is crafted of papier mache, Kraft paper and wire. A dapper catrin with a jaunty cap pedals his fare, an elegantly-dressed catrina in a smart pink suit.

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.

It is impressive the mask design and more dramatic are the colors. It is a focus of attention. Love it.
