This finely hand sculpted ceramic Catrina is inspired by the explosion of rock music onto pop culture during the 1980's. From punk rock to heavy metal and hair metal, these raw and vibrant musical genres have made an impact on modern society like no other musical genre. The attitude, energy, and artistic expression found in rock’n roll and punk rock has inspired us for many years. The San Miguel Trading family assisted in the design process of the original Catrina sculpture. Sculpted from ceramic and hand painted to perfection by the very talented Delgado Perez of Michoacán Mexico. In Mexico rock’n roll, heavy metal, and punk have made are extremely popular and “the Devil may Care” attitude is closely intertwined with the Dia de los Muertos celebrations. The artist expressed his astonishing ability to accent life like details; from the creases on the blue denim colored jeans to the pockets of the spiked leather jacket and of course the eccentric mohawk. This is an original work art that celebrates the traditions of Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead)
The Artisan Process…
This Catrina is hand sculpted from raw clay. After several hours of sculpting and shaping the catrina the soft clay sculpture is then placed in a large traditional red brick oven and kiln fired for several hours. Once fired the sculpture is hand painted with a mixture of life like colors that compliment the raw emotion, look, and style of hard rock music!
