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.
