Details

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.

"BEAUTIFUL"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

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.
