Working in papier mache, Marina Lozano of Mexico creates this excellent catrina statuette. The skeletal sculpture is elegantly dressed, with ribbons and flowers in her hair and a large slice of watermelon in her hands. Lozano 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.

"Every one loves my 2020 Frog! So creative"
Thank you, Marina. This little frog is absolutely ADORABLE! A must have treasure. This was the perfect Christmas present for me -- from my cats (they buy such wonderful things for me). Right now, my frog is standing proudly on the mantle -- but will eventually hang from the ceiling in my office so I can see him more. I assure you, you will not be disappointed if you buy this for yourself -- or for a friend who just needs to smile.
