Beautiful, luminous, cobalt blue color! Looks awesome hanging on our covered patio wall. My wife loved her gift!
Whimsical and creative
These artists are so creative, whimsical, and talented in their carving and their design. I can see they have passion in their work.
Detailed, finely made
I do appreciate these artists who create the Oaxacan detail techniques of painting and carving. This is a great example of how that is done. I will look forward to collecting more from these artisans!

Ceramic Catrina Figurine Handmade in Mexico, "Catrina in Turquoise"
This marvelous original statuette is from Mexico's Rita Sandoval, who has a passion for her ancestral culture. She 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. Sandoval creates the elegant figure in ceramic, with a gown of turquoise trimmed with flowers. A wide-brimmed hat and parasol complete her ensemble.

Hand Crafted and Painted Ceramic Catrina Sculpture, "La Catrina Esperanza"
Artisan Luis Morales of Mexico crafts a magnificent ceramic Catrina to grace your mantel or shelf. Formed by hand from clay, her ensemble is carefully painted in red, silver, gold and blue hues. The elegant figure is based on a satirical etching created by Mexican artist José Guadalupe Posada around 1910-1913. With his etching, Posada poked fun at those Mexican natives who tried to emulate the fashion and habits of the European aristocracy. Today, has become the instantly recognizable icon of Día de los Muertos (Mexico's Day of the Dead).
