This original work of art is covered in over 2 dozen little ceramic monarch butterflies. Each one is hand painted with great detail. The name of this ceramic catrina sculpture "Monarca Migración" literal translation "The Monarch Migration" speaks to the annual massive migration of Monarch butterflies to the state of Michoacan Central Mexico. The artist M. Perez lives in the state of Michoacan and uses the untamed natural beauty that this territory offers as a constant inspiration for the Catrina figures that he sculpts and paints by hand.
The Monarca Migración is hand sculpted from raw clay, after sculpting and shaping the catrina it is then kiln fired for several hours in a traditional large red brick oven. After the kiln fire is completed the vibrant colors and detailed patterns are painted by hand covering the catrina on all sides.
