NEW Glitter Eyed Skull Mask

Great piece of folk art, which was inspired by the papier mâché masks of Celeya in the 1940's. Great wall decoration. These come in bright assorted hat colors. These masks were actually used in the Independence parades of 16 de September, not for Day of the Dead. But, who cares??? These are frequently used by dance troops and DoD festival goers. One would have to punch a hole in the sides with a nail and thread some ribbon through to tie it on, if you actually wanted to use the mask. 8" high.

Mini Papier Mache Skull cascade
Papier mache was popular Day of the Dead decor during the late 1800's Colonial Period. These black & white skulls look like 3D interpretations of skeletons in the wood cuts made popular by the "father of folk art", Jose Guadalupe Posada, who worked up to the time of the Mexican Revolution 1910.

Catrina Figurine in Pink

The Zona Rosa, or Pink Zone, is where many tourists stay when they're visiting Mexico City. I think it got its name from being a brothel zone before the Revolution. These big busted catrinas probably came from around the Zona Rosa in these striking, pink dresses! 9" tall. Peru. On wood bases. Assorted dress.
