Mexican Painted Tin Ornament of Catrina (Day of the Dead!)


Ah, Catrina...the belle of the past life ball!

 Day of the Dead - or Dio de los Muertos - aficionados can spot the lovely Catrina from, well, centuries away.  Helping celebrate the life of those who have come before (and are most certainly partying away in the afterlife!) Catrina is known for her big hats, coquettish smile and wearing the latest (at the time) fashion.

Tin turned into pieces of art is a Mexican (and Spanish Colonial) craft tradition but these tin ornaments are art for your tree.  We think they're also pretty special to hang in a window, as a package adornment, tucked into a greeting card or - why not?! - ideal for gracing the wall of your office cubicle all year long!

Each of these lovely ornaments celebrating Catrina is hand crafted by Mexican artists out of tin and then brightly painted.  Lightweight and ready to hang.
