Dressed for the charreada, or Mexican rodeo, this elegant catrina is dazzling. Mexican artisan Luis Morales crafts the statuette by hand from clay and paints her magnificent red and gold costume in stunning detail. Women have traditionally had a role in the event by demonstrating their horsemanship with choreographed, synchronized maneuvers. The elegant figure is inspired by a satirical etching created by Mexican artist José Guadalupe Posada around 1910-1913. With his etching, Posada poked fun at those Mexican natives who tried to emulate the fashion and habits of the European aristocracy. Today, la Catrina has become the instantly recognizable icon of Día de los Muertos (Mexico's Day of the Dead).

"remembering those that came before"
I had such a hard time deciding on which 1 of these to pick from!! I picked Francesca because she is holding a platter to feed her family . The detail is amazing and the painting is so exact. I will probably need to order another 1 from this artist because I was so impressed with the talent it was made with.
