THE HANDMAIDEN: DAY OF THE DEAD..... awesome Halloween makeup ideas by caroline
Una catrina es una obra de arte relacionada con la muerte. Tiene un significado metafórico de la clase social alta mexicana. Es una calavera, una huesuda que lleva sombrero y si es con plumas de avestruz mejor que mejor. Su creación se debe al gran artista mexicano José Guadalupe Posada, y fue nombrada así por Diego Rivera. La Catrina no tiene ropa, debe llevar sólo el sombrero, y es una crítica al mexicano rico y pobre que quiere aparentar ser europeo.
Gracias por la explicacion! Me encanta la celebracion del dia de los muertos!
I had to Google Elsa's explanation and thought it was really informative. Here it is in English for those of you who are interested. Hope you don't mind, Elsa!
A catrina is a work of art-related death. It has a metaphorical meaning of the Mexican upper class. It is a skull, a bony wears a hat and if ostrich feathers the better. It was created by the great Mexican artist Jose Guadalupe Posada, and was named by Diego Rivera. La Catrina has no clothes, you wear only the hat, and a critique of the rich and poor Mexican who wants to appear to be European.
Thanks Heather, I was abt to look it up when I saw your post :)
I was asked recently if I forgot that Dia De Los Muertos is in November. No, I didn't forget. But when the urge to paint your face like a skeleton for three consecutive days hits you, you can't resist. Wait until it happens to you!
