Details

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"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

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.
