Details

Showing off her finery, Catrina is on display in this unique folk art wall accent from Rocio Pindter in Mexico. The artwork is crafted from tin with a glass pane, and hand painted with a beautiful Catrina wearing a bodacious feathered hat. The yellow metal frame is lavishly decorated with colorful flowers.

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.

"A nice addition to my folk art collection."

Lovely small niche (retalbo). Excellent detail in the decorative exterior painting of the tin piece. It s small size provides great flexibility with placement. I am quite happy with this purchase. It arrived well-packaged.
