The most cantankerous woman who ever roamed the Southwest.
Born in Mexico City in 1823, she and her husband (who died mysteriously early on in their marriage) set up their cattle ranch on land that would become Texas in 1848. She fought off American militia when they tried to seize her land and even took a bullet in the eye.
She had 10 children, all of whom were fathered by different outlaws, and turned the ranch into one of the most profitable in the region. She held her own with all the roughnecks and couldn't be bullied. She drank, spit, cussed like a fallen woman, and smoked Cuban cigars. Legend says that when she finally died they had to bury her 3 times before she would stay put...they kept finding her corpse up on the porch in her rocker the morning after the funerals.
Granny Muerta is a sculpted corpse bust with eye patch, cigar, and other details under a 5 inch glass dome.
