China Poblana & Charro Paper Mache Day of the Dead Sculptures

$980.00 USD

ABOUT THIS DAY OF THE DEAD PIECE

These day of the dead paper mache sculptures represent two of the most traditional dance costumes of Mexico: La China Poblana y el Charro. The pieces are so well crafted that it is hard to believe they were made of paper mache. 

 The piece is a merge of two important traditions: Mexican Dances and Catrinas. The dance that China poblana & charro perform is usually the "Jarabe Tapatío"

 Catrinas were created by the Mexican artist & cartoonist José Guadalupe Posadas to symbolize the futility of social differences by depicting a skeleton dressed as a rich lady.  Posada's work was inspired in Mexican celebration of the day of the dead.

 The piece is mounted on a 3x3" wooden base.
