Showing off her finery, Catrina is on display in this unique folk art wall accent from Rocio Pindter in Mexico. The small artwork is crafted from tin with a glass pane, and hand painted with a beautiful Catrina wearing a bodacious feathered hat. The blue metal frame is lavishly decorated with colorful flowers, fish and birds.
The original 'La Calavera Catrina' was 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.
