This is so beautiful. The small sculpture is made up of very little toys. You can seat and look at it for a long time trying to make out each item. It is just wonderful. Thank you.

Ceramic Catrina Figurine Handmade in Mexico, "Catrina in Turquoise"
This marvelous original statuette is from Mexico's Rita Sandoval, who has a passion for her ancestral culture. She designs the figurine after the original "La Calavera Catrina", 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. Sandoval creates the elegant figure in ceramic, with a gown of turquoise trimmed with flowers. A wide-brimmed hat and parasol complete her ensemble.
