Hand Painted Day of the Dead Wall Art from Mexico, "El Catrin"$37.99
Bearing gifts, a dapper greets you in this original wall accent from Rocio Pindter in Mexico. The image is designed like a (a Mexican game rather like bingo) card, and set in a florid hand painted tin frame with a glass pane.
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/catrin has since become an emblem of Mexico's Day of the Dead celebration and a popular folk art subject.
