A catrina, the mocking way to laugh at the death so typical of Mexican culture, from which the artist Lourdes Villagómez has drunk. Skulls, skeletons… illustrated with color, with the positivity of tradition and the Day of the Dead festival. Here, the artist, in addition, accompanies the skull with feathers, brings it closer to the indigenous culture, to the origin of her ancestors. "Death is something inevitable for all, I wanted to represent it with a happy authority. Tufts were a sign of evident authority. By representing it more cheerful with so many colors, I show this duality with which we Mexicans perceive death". Diego Rivera deified it in Aguascalientes, today Villagómez can do it directly in your home.
