Jose Juan Catrina Handmade Clay Sculpture 4" x 10"

Mexico
$189.00

Dia de los Muertos is a celebration of family, reuniting the deceased with the living....connecting the past to the present. While there is sincere reverence for the deceased, the festivities are also engaged in with humor and fun. Muertos artists create popular figures of calaveras in tin, clay, paper, scene boxes and other materials to decorate altars. The image the artist shows is "La Calavera de la Catrina" she is from a 1913 zinc etching by Mexican engraver and printmaker José Guadalupe Posada. The image has since become a staple of Mexican imagery, and is often incorporated into artistic manifestations of the Day of the Dead such as altars and calavera costumes. It was part of his series of calaveras, which were humorous images of contemporary figures depicted as skeletons, often accompanied by a poem.
