Love of the Pony

Marella. 23. Aries/Pisces. Mexico. I love my music loud and all things surreal and magical.

"La Calavera Garbancera" (commonly known as "La Catrina") by José Guadalupe Posada, Mexican printmaker and cartoonist.

Posada made a series of calaveras, images of animated skeletons, intended as social satire. Particularly, “La Catrina” was a parody on the indigenous people who attempted to shed their native heritage. They dressed and acted as if they themselves were Europeans, denying their race, their culture. “La Catrina” mocked this.
