Catrina Box

A great addition to any ofrenda or home decor, these clay pieces are hand-painted by Gustavo Rodrigo Ramirez, a Nahuatl artesano who learned to paint from his father. The meticulous detail is evident in each brushstroke, the bright colors forming a beautiful contrast, sure to be a focal point to your ofrenda. Each box features a pair, a Catrina and Catrin, elegantly poised, hands folded in their front as if to be ready to give their wedding vows. A perfect homage to our abuelos who come to visit us each year.
