The coquettish image of the Catrina inspires Maria Belen Nilson's Day of the Dead Catrina Earrings. Catrina is the original creation of José Guadalupe Posada, renowned author, journalist and political cartoonist (1852-1913). Posada is credited for popularizing the Day of the Dead celebrations, especially through the creation of skeletal (calaca) cartoons that capture the Mexican attitude towards death.
One of the most renowned skeletons is the Catrina, (meaning "dapper lady"), and she is always elegantly dressed featuring a wide brimmed hat with flowers. Our earrings set measures 3/4 inch wide by about 2 inches long. These are hand made, so please allow for variation.
