“¡Come closer, and I will tell you the story of my woeful life and death! My name is Doña Estrella del Soledad, I was raised on a hacienda near Sonora. I witnessed how the love of my life, Ricardo was murdered by my past suitor and his gang right in the church, as we were about to take our marriage vows before the altar. I was barely twenty and already a widow…Grief took over my mind, I spent my days alone, entrenched within my hacienda. I played “Besame Mucho” on a battered old gramophone and I cried until the desert took over everything around me…men-eating fire ants were my last visitors on my deathbed. ¡Choose me, lonesome wayfarer, and let me find peace in the arms of my Ricardo!”
Las Catrinas, these wonderful clay statuettes, are a typical element of Latin-American culture. The artisans form every single clay doll in detail, burn them and finally bring the skeletons but to life by acryl-painting them colorfully. Every statue is a piece of art, guaranteed to bring new color and a touch of real Mexican atmosphere to your home.
