13″ Day of the Dead Catrin Figure

day of the dead decor

Hand Made from paper mache and painted by hand, this Day of the Dead Catrin is just over 1 foot tall! The Catrina, an upperclass lady of the turn-of-the-century usually depicted in her broad-brimmed hat, has become a classic in Mexican folk art. Not to be out done, the men have the Catrin in a suit shown here. The images of the skeletons can be found in everything from fine ceramic and artistic paper mache figures, to inexpensive papel picados, paintings and plaster miniatures.
