Details

Elegant Catrina strolls around the park under a wide-brimmed hat, parasol at hand. Angel Cerón conjures her flamboyant appearance inspired by the original work of José Guadalupe Posadas. A renowned author, journalist and political cartoonist (1852-1913), he created Catrina, (meaning "dapper") and her mate, Catrin, as caricature symbols of Mexico's politicians, implying that after all, they too die. Since then, Catrina has become an essential element of Day of the Dead celebrations but without the political underpinnings. She represents Mexico's comedic attitude towards death.

"Beautiful Reminder"

I was in Cozumel a few weeks ago and heard about the history and meaning of La Catrina. In the end, we are all the same. I couldn't find one that spoke to me and I liked while there. I have been happy with Novica purchases in the past. I found this and of course bought it. My Catrina is on a table by my front door so I remember the meaning every time I leave my home or come home.

I ordered a statute of the Maya rain god Chaac, as he was by far my favorite deity I learned of while studying the Maya. The statue is absolutely stunning. I would highly recommend Angel Cerón's work to anyone!

Very satisfied with my “Coatlicue”, definitely an astonishing piece. Thank you a lot Angel!
