China Poblana & Charro Paper Mache Day of the Dead Sculptures
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.
