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.

She very quickly became one of my favorite thing in the house. She s on a shelf next to my bed and every night I tell her goodnight. The detail is impeccable. Definitely 100%+++++ the money I spent. Especially considering she was created in Mexico makes her even more special. Beautiful. Beautiful. BEAUTIFUL.
