One of a kind, extra large, white and black papier-mâché skull with a hat, reminds one of the black and white etchings by Jose Posada which came to be known as La Catrina. This unique sculpture was handmade by the Garcia family of Mexico City. This skull is larger than life and is beautifully made in smooth papier-mâché. Her head is hollow and the painted lines on the face express movement. The flowers and feathers of the hat are 3-dimensional, as are the curls of hair along the sides of her head. Wonderful for celebrating Día de los Muertos or for staring at all year long. Extremely well crafted and painted. A unique and stunning piece.
