This OOAK art doll standing 27" tall combines two of my favorite holidays: the Mexican Day of the Dead and the American Halloween.
She has a sculpted paper clay head with inset handmade eyes, a soft sculpture body over a wood and wire armature which is mounted to a wood base. A human hair wig in jet black graces her head and real earrings with black paste stones adorn her ears. La Catrina is wearing an elaborate costume designed with bats and Jack o' lantern embroidered tulle layered over orange satin, wired felt hat, antique black crochet lace, ribbons and sculptural hat feathers, paper marigolds and roses. She holds a bouquet of lilies as if posing for a Diego Rivera painting. Sold to Sharon...Thank you!
