La Catrinas Figures

Although the original la catrina image ‘symbolized the inner-emptiness of the upper class (fancy dead women in ball gowns)’ and ‘created to show the reason why a revolution was needed to equalize Mexican society’ I am drawn to the revolutionary catrinas, brandishing rifles and criss-crossed ammunition belts, with little baby skeletons slung on their backs.
