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.

During Day of the Dead, street vendors find their way to the City with a myriad of special products to celebrate the holiday as well as sell special elements for the ofrendas. The Pajaeros still carry stacks of metal and hand made bird cages through the streets, and hand made cotton candy & poles of candy apples are a once-a-year treat.

Musicos in the Cemetery - It's the job of the current mayor of a village to pay for the cemetery's music on November 2. Sometimes it's good, and sometimes it's very squeaky and cheap music. It's hard to live it down if you don't provide good music for your village. The mayor also has to pay for the rented chairs and some impress their village neighbors with paying for a Coca-cola truck to come give away free Cokes in the cemetery. It's very expensive to be mayor in Oaxaca!
