ORIGINS
 Jose Guadalupe Posada writer  and  ink  illustrator, created  satirical comics  using skeletons to criticize the events of Mexico on the post- Imperialism time:

1864-1910 . The  European influence on Mexican women dressing in expensive clothes, jewelry and make up was captured  by Posada in a skull women “calaca garbancera” wearing only a fancy decorated hat and denying her Indian origins. Diego Rivera in 1948 brings Posada's concept and painted this female figure in his famous mural " Un Domingo en la Alameda " . He  dressed her in fancy clothes and named Catrina.  This icon take important part in the celebration of "Dia de Muertos" that has been nominated Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO.
