In time for the Mexican Day of the Dead (and Halloween) this photo is inspired by the very talented children book illustrator Cara Carmina's wonderful series of Catrina dolls (Cara Carmina is also here on Etsy!). Like with her Frida dolls, I wanted to transform her in to her own creation. This version is a darker, almost Burtonesque Catrina still with the typical facial tattoos but with accompanying pearls, which Cara Carmina uses to decorate her Catrina Dolls with.

Celebrating the 100th anniversary Catrina was created by Mexican engraver and illustrator José Guadalupe Posada. Posada (1852-1913) was also a political satirist renowned for his images of skeletons (calaveras in Spanish) which he used to mock the upper classes and social and political injustice.
La Catrina is now a symbol of Day of the Dead celebrations held in Mexico every November.
