“I am the Marquise Doña Inez de Calavera, the deceased consort of the last lawful Viceroy of New Spain. While I had veins, the purest blue blood flowed in them, since my lineage can be traced back to the Royal House of Spain. Moreover, in my family, everyone was born in the beloved Old Country, so we kept our pre-eminence as opposed to the other lowly colonists. Ugh! I always said that the golden age of the colonies could only prevail as long as the subordinates know their place. We did not pay enough attention to this! Revolution? Independence? Give me a break! Your Mexico was born in bloodshed and it can never be as magnificent as our Nueva España… As we were standing before the Indios firing-squad, we kissed each other with my beloved husband for the last time. Then I closed my Salamancan parasol and I showed them how a true Spanish aristocrat dies! Pick me, and I promise you an advantageous marriage right into the Spanish Court! ¡Viva El Rey!”
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.
