Dressed as a country woman of the early twentieth century, Catrina poses in a green meadow. Gorky González creates this colorful decorative plate using traditional Majolica techniques. The word catrina is widely used in Mexico to mean 'elegant and polished.' Lithographer Jose Guadalupe Posadas created the skeletal Catrina, who was later immortalized in the murals of Diego Rivera.
González signs his work 'AT,' for alfarería tradicional (traditional ceramics).
