Art Description

Sculpture: Bronze on Steel.

This piece is a modern take on the traditional mexican rag dolls whose origins are most likely in the south of the central state of Queretaro, which have been called "Marias" but are more commonly called simply "rag dolls" (muñecas de trapo). Mexico has a long history of making rag dolls, but the ones known popularly from their appearance nationally, especially in tourist venues may date back only to the 1970s, part of a project to enhance income opportunities for Otomi women in the Amealco municipality.

Edition of 8.
The piece itself weighs 5kg and the metal base another 5kg. The main figure is made of bronze and the base is made of painted steel.
