Collections: Decorated Sugar Skulls

Decorated Catrina Sugar Skull

A1326

Approx. 4 1/2″ tall.

The catrina is an iconic symbol of Day of the Dead, who was originally drawn in woodcut by Jose Guadalupe Posada back in the early 1910’s. These difficult to make sugar skulls are painstakingly decorated with colored icing, doo-dahs, rick rack and feathers. Made by master sugar candy makers of Mexico, these are very special sugar skulls to adorn the home ofrendas. The fancier the better the offering! This probably would be placed on an ofrenda honoring a woman rather than a man.
