Our friend from Ojinaga created this wonderful framed picture. The drawing is an original based on the famous Posada drawings that illustrated the Days of the Dead so marvelously. The drawing is in black, whites and greys, but lends itself to be painted if you chose.
The bright red frame is accented in metallic gold and measures 7-3/4 inches high (including the wooden concha trim) by 6-1/2 inches wide and is 1-1/4 inch deep. The concha (curved part on top) measures about 1-1/2 inch high by 4-1/2 inches wide. All of these measurements are approximate as each is hand made from recycled Mexican fruit crates (rejas) and occasionally, of new wood.
The center of the concha features a calaca, or Day of the Dead Skull fashioned from dental plaster, as the artist's wife is a dentist!
Of course, you can replace the picture with your own, or add some mementos to it and further embellish the frame. You might even choose to paint the image. Please be careful adding color - we're not sure if the black lines will bleed. Please make a test on the back before you try.
This piece was created by the great folk artist Bryant "Eduardo" Holman. He is no longer with us and we miss him terribly.
