Beautiful, luminous, cobalt blue color! Looks awesome hanging on our covered patio wall. My wife loved her gift!
Detailed, finely made
I do appreciate these artists who create the Oaxacan detail techniques of painting and carving. This is a great example of how that is done. I will look forward to collecting more from these artisans!
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.

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.
