Hand Sculpted Catrina Rockero 1980
Finely hand sculpted ceramic Catrina, inspired by the explosion of rock music onto pop culture during the 1980's and Mexican folk-art. 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. 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 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)
