Details

Hand-painted by Eufrosia Pantaleon, this beautiful statuette represents Catrina, the popular icon of Mexico's Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead. The sculpture is crafted from ceramic in wonderful detail, from the broad-brimmed hat to the flowers at the hem of her skirt.

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.
