Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


Day of the Dead or Halloween very detailed ceramic figure made in Mexico by the famed Aguilar family. Signed by artist Demetrio Garcia Aguilar son of Guillermina Aguilar. Called the Turkey Lady or Vendor because she carries a turkey in her left hand. In her right she sustains on her head a platter containing 3 skulls and to slices of water melon. On her skirt is a tree trunk with skulls in the bark. In front of her skirt are two skeleton figures, one is a traveler carrying a nap sack receiving a slice of watermelon from a woman with watermelons at her knees on a pallet. The sculpture is in two pieces; the woman vendor and the turkey which is detachable.
I have collected individual figurines of Aguilar art for years. This is an exceptional and unique piece of Mexican Day of the Dead folk art.
