Details

Catrina, the legendary cartoon skeleton by José Guadalupe Posada, becomes a muse for Alejandro Esesarte. Originally a metaphorical representation of the higher social class in Mexico prior to the 1914 revolution, she now symbolizes Day of the Dead. She represents death and dresses quite flirtatiously. Esesarte replicates Posada's original portrayal in this unique steel wall sculpture, which he cuts and hammers by hand.

Part of NOVICA's Dia de los Muertos collection.

"I am on the autism spectrum. Because of my ASD, I could not hold a job very long. I am totally isolated from people. So I was forced to try to make my own way in order to survive. My only interactions are those needed to make and sell my art. I am obsessed with perfection and beauty, quality and detail in my metal sculptures. Novica found me at a trade show and took me out of poverty. Thanks to my artistic success, I now have economic independence and total liberty. A special thanks to those who purchase my designs. Thank you for giving me my identity and value."

Alejandro de Esesarte has received 4 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $2850 and the most recent for $6000.
