Day Of The Dead La Catrina Folk Art Sculpture

$ 45.00

Poised and dressed to the nines, La Catrina personifies death with whimsical elegance. As always, she wears a fine dress and a wide-brimmed hat.

One of the most common symbols you'll see around Día de los Muertos is La Catrina, a statement-making skeletal figure adorned in a fine dress and hat.

According to urban legend, La Catrina's roots come from Aztec death goddess Mictecacihuatl. In the legend, the goddess served the same purpose as La Catrina does today: to honor and protect those who have passed and to symbolize the relationship Mexicans have with death.
