This RaineMaker Mask named Catrina Posada is a Sugar Skull (La Calavera) mask inspired by the etching of Jose Guadalupe Posada from 1910 depicting a tall elegant skeleton with a wide brimmed hat adorned with flowers and feathers, she has since become an iconic symbol of the Mexican Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebrations.
Catrina Posada is a fully wearable mask made from papier mache with a felt half-hat attached and is decorated with artificial flowers and purple and brown ethically sourced Ostrich feathers. It also sports a shimmery grey lace veil which falls gracefully behind the wearers head. Her face is painted with acrylic paints and sealed with a crackle glaze which has been aged with a bitumen and wax patina.
She has ribbons for wearing and a ribbon loop so she can make the transition from wearable mask to much admired 3D statement wall art.
Catrina Posada comes with her own Certificate of Authenticity.
