Bateas are hand-carved wooden “trough” bowls typically used throughout Mexico, South and Central America to knead dough and mix masa for tortillas. 


This small version of a batea has been transformed with hand-painted secular art of a  skeleton adelita – woman soldier – who were famous in the Mexican Revolution for wearing their best dresses and lipstick while in battle.


It measures roughly 8 inches in height, 3.5 inches in width.  Ready to hang, primary colors are black, red, green, gold and aubergine.
