History of Dia de los Muertos
Dia de los Muertos is a traditional Mexican holiday with roots dating back thousands of years, honoring friends and family who have passed. Altars for the loved one are put on the specially cleaned grave or at home, with photos, marigolds, fruit, and candles. A special meal with all of their favorite foods is “shared” with the dear departed. Symbolizing Dia de los Muertos, the Catrina is a popular choice for costuming and face painting. The Catrina is a figure of a skeleton woman, dressed to the nines to party, or simply going about her business in day to day life.
No Mas! brings this time honored Mexican tradition to Atlanta with an impressive array of Catrinas from three inches to five feet tall – not to mention the nine foot Catrina permanently on display. Painstakingly created from ceramic, the hand painted Catrinas include every detail from the delicate, intricate bones of the hand to elaborate details of dress and accessories.
