Beautifully crafted paper mache skeletons at work, handmade in Mexico City. These charming calacas are either selling pan de muertos (day of the dead bread) or tamales from a basket. They can be added to the ofrenda or sit on a shelf for a touch of whimsy and uniqueness. These beautiful and recognizable pieces are by the Bobadilla brothers of Mexico City. Their work can be seen in many museums in Mexico. Very top quality.
