Overview

Female skeleton with red parasol extravagantly dressed in European attire. Catrinas were first depicted in an etching by artist Jose Guadalupe Posada in the early 1900's shown with large European hats. Diego Rivera added fine clothing to the Catrinas in his paitings. Since then the Catrinas have become more associated with the Days of the Dead ceremonies showing the macabre humor the Mexicans have for Life, Death and the whole circle of our existence. Skeletons from the aztecs, European and gaudy attire from more contemporary times and even everyday activities are now depicted in many catrinas.

Description

Catrina stands 12" tall to the tip of her red parasol. She is attired in a purple and turquoise European styled dress with pleats. Note the skeletal bones showing in her chest. Created in paper mache by an artist in the area around Guadalajara, Mexico. No two Catrinas are alike, similar but different, since each is hand made individually.
