Details

Catrina wears a whimsical hat with flowers and smiles a flirty grin. This sculpture by Armando Ramírez commemorates Mexico's Day of the Dead. The Catrina name refers to death personified who is always dressed in exuberant fashion and colors in order to lure mortals.

Always creative, Ramírez recycles castoff auto parts and discarded bits of metal. Wire mesh becomes a broad-brimmed bonnet while sheet metal scraps are transformed into her gown, shawl and handbag. A clutch foot forms the body; the face comes from a motor's rocker arm.

Ramírez does not give his sculptures a fine polished finish, therefore smudges and scratches may be present.

"Connected old and young in delight!"

Opened at a socially distanced outdoor birthday party for a teenager, the young biker it was given to and all the other generations passed it and the information about the artist around to smiles, laughter, oohs and aahs, bringing people from different generations and different countries together for a moment amidst the isolation everyone is feeling right now.

My husband is very fond of this group of artists treasures, and really liked the ship. The large size is really appealing and unusual. Lots of details make it impressive.

I bought this for my grandson. He loves it. Especially because it came from Mexico. His Dad is from Mexico and he?s very proud of his heritage. When I saw this I knew it was for him. Amazing detail and craftsmanship. I know he?ll have this forever.
