  • Charro Catrin "Lupita/o" Najaco Ceramic Doll Brown 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. Note the beautiful face and all the lovely details.
  • 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 brown color.
  • He is also holding a rope.

  • The Lupita is painted by Mexican artisans, each detail is hand painted and each doll is initialed or signed by the artisan.
  • Lupita/o 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.
