Catrinas Beauty Bust

£65.00

So who is Catrina ? Well prepare to be enlightened, La Calavera Catrina ('Dapper Skeleton', 'Elegant Skull') is a 1910–1913 zinc etching by José Guadalupe Posada.

The image depicts a female skeleton dressed only in a hat befitting the upper class outfit of a European of her time. She is offered as a satirical portrait of those Mexican natives who, Posada felt, were aspiring to adopt European aristocratic traditions in the pre-revolutionary era.

Now popular through-out USA & Europe as a face linked with the tattoo scene on everything from clothing to ornaments she's shows no sign of going anywhere fast and we think that's cause for celebration itself
