A young skeleton dresses in the patriotic colors of the Mexican flag, her apparel that of the rural Mexican countryside. This is Catrina, who plays the coquette. She is an elegant lady, now a skeleton, but seemingly unaware of her own condition. Her name refers to death personified. Inspired by the caricatures of lithographer Jose Guadalupe Posada, Catrina is an important personage in Mexico's November 2 Day of the Dead celebrations. Marina Lozano works in papier mache to depict the extravagant image and meticulously paints it by hand.

"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.
