Fantastic Halloween decoration
I will use this as part of an entire Halloween/Day of the Dead set of decorations. So much more colorful and classy then most Halloween decorations.`

I have purchased several pieces by the Gamez Family and have been consistently impressed by the craftsmanship and creativity of their work. I look forward to seeing more of their wonderful creations on Novica.

"Now that I'm retired, I can dedicate my time to my great passion – representing my pre-Hispanic cultural heritage."
I've been working hand-in-hand with you since 2003. It was my nephew, Eduardo Escamilla, who suggested this, and I found the project to be spectacular. As you may know, I'm an engineer by profession but I feel an overwhelming passion for our pre-Hispanic cultures.... read more

Day of the Dead Upcycled Metal Sculpture of Elegant Catrina, "Glamorous Catrina"$129.99
Wearing a dress of fig leaves, Catrina arrives on the Day of the Dead as an honored guest. Political cartoonist Jose Guadalupe Posadas created this renowned character in the early 1900's as a critique of Mexico's bourgeoisie, and to remind them they are mortals too. The Catrina name refers to death personified who is always dressed in exuberant fashion and colors in order to lure mortals. Always creative, Armando Ramírez sculpts her image by upcycling a wide variety of metal pieces including wire mesh for the broad-brimmed bonnet while sheet metal scraps are transformed into her gown, shawl and handbag. Wires become her arms and shape her jewelry.
Ramírez does not give his sculptures a fine polished finish, therefore smudges and scratches may be present.
Day of the Dead Catrina Ceramic Sculpture Crafted by Hand, "Catrina the Beautiful"$79.99
Flowers accessorize Catrina's turquoise dress as she personifies death with grace and humor. As always, she wears a wide-brimmed hat. Artisans from the Angel Cerón Artisan Association are inspired by the celebrated cartoon developed by José Guadalupe Posadas to poke fun at Mexico's high society during the early 1900's. Revealing Catrina's skeletal figure, the Oaxacan clay sculpture is painted by hand.
Catrina's head can be removed.
