Charro Catrin "Lupita" Najaco Ceramic Doll Wine color Suit

The figurine is 13" tall
5" wide (at the Sombrero).
He is 4" (Shoulder to shoulder).

This ceramic doll is made by the Arana family in Tonala, Mexico.

He is a Charro. [chahr-oh; Spanish chahr-raw] a Mexican horseman, typically one wearing an elaborate outfit, often with silver decorations, of tight trousers, ruffled shirt, short jacket, and sombrero.

The charro is a Catrin. His face is painted to look skeletal.
What does El Catrin symbolize? "Catrina/Catrin" has come to symbolize not only El Día de los Muertos and the Mexican willingness to laugh at death itself, but originally catrina was an elegant or well-dressed woman, so it refers to rich people.

The Suit is painted a beautiful Wine color.
He is holding a rope, along with a wide sombrero. (Hat)

The Lupita is painted by Mexican artisans, each detail is hand painted and each doll is initialed or signed by the artisan.
Lupita is a typical name in Mexico, thus the name Lupita was given to each figurine.
Najaco dolls are created in Tonalá, Jalisco.  In 1992, the family was looking for a way to depict Mexican people doing daily chores (especially women) while in their typical outfits.

This folk art is full of colored detail. Each doll is molded, afterward each figurine is hand painted by artisans.

Please note: these figurines are individually hand painted and will have slight variations one to another.
