Catrina Lamp

By Sarah Hage | 2 comments 2 comments


La Catrina is a very popular figure in Mexican Day of the Dead Celebrations. Typically, she wears Late-19th upper-class clothing with a wide-brimmed hat and feather boa (mine wears a real snake). Her husband, El Catrin, wears a top hat and tails. Catrines were popularized by the artist Posada to lampoon the foibles of the matter how rich you are, you will die, and you can't take it with you.

I built the Catrina out of papier-mache over a thrift-store lamp.

I REALLY like that mirror and all of your stuff is original and well done.
