Catrina, the Sugar Skull Cat Doll

$80.00

Handmade

Hello, my gloomy friend; I’m Catrina.

On the Day of the Dead, I wear my most elegant gown, put marigolds in my hair, and cross the veil between the world of the living and the dead. I visit the cemeteries to greet the cats that crossed over with song and dance and a little bit of catnip.

I stay with them until the break of dawn when they return to the otherworld.

Will you celebrate with me?

Catrina is a lovingly handmade collectible doll made from cotton fabric. Her skull, ribs, and hips are made from felt, and hand-embroidered details decorate her face.

Her satin dress has lace appliqué to add elegance to her gown.

Some handmade details and colors may vary.

Although Catrina enjoys playing with children, she’s not suitable for kids under 3 years of age.

Catrina is made to order and will be ready to ship in 3-5 business days.

Description

The original Catrina, a skeleton wearing fancy clothes, was created 100 years ago by the caricaturist José Guadalupe Posada. He used her to criticize the new rich who were of indigenous origin but pretended to be European.

In 1947, the muralist Diego Rivera immortalized the Catrina in the painting “Dream of a Sunday Afternoon at the Alameda Central”.

Since then, she’s become a central figure on the Day of the Dead celebrations.

Catrina, the Sugar Skull Cat Doll, honors Mexico’s Day of the Dead.

Each cat is specially created for you. Depending on my workload, a cat will be on its way to you in 3-5 business days.

Before placing your order, please contact me to check for availability. I might have a cat ready to ship.
