La Calavera Catrina
One of Día de los Muertos’ most recognizable figures, La Catrina was born out of Mexican social satire depicting the upper classes and is still depicted in art today in celebration of the holiday. Artist Ricardo Soltero’s 8-foot tall figures represent seven figures from Mexican culture.
- La Calavera Catrina was exhibited at Denver Botanic Gardens in the fall of 2017.
- Guests of the Tucson Botanical Gardens can experience the rich history and iconography through the colorful and joyful large-scale La Calavera Catrina until Nov. 29, 2020.
