Created by Jose Guadalupe Posada in the early 20th century, Catrina is an icon of the Mexican Dia de los Muertos,  an uplifting month-long celebration observed by locals.  Intricate in design, you will fall in love with this print and the story it tells.

Look closely and you will notice each skeleton in this print is engaged in playful movement, dancing or playing musical instruments, wearing sombreros and national dress; the iconic cactus plant makes an appearance, a native plant that magically springs forth and retains water in an otherwise arid, dry land, embodying the basin of Mexico’s natural world.

This elegant monochrome print represents the unity and energy of Mexico, the skeletons are warm, joyful and engaged in the moment.
