This gorgeous catrina is the original creation of Rita Sandoval in Mexico. She crafts the statuette by hand from ceramic, painting it with a brilliant pointillist motif in a rainbow of colors. The figure flaunts a flower-accented picture hat and clutches a slice of watermelon in one skeletal hand.
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.

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.
