Photographer: Giovanni Simeone
A black Catrina, enveloped in an atmosphere of mystery and elegance, emerges in the darkness. Often depicted wearing elegant attire, such as a wide-brimmed hat and a lavish dress, to represent the upper class. This portrayal serves to symbolize equality in the face of death, emphasizing that, in the end, everyone is equal. The Catrina represents the remembrance and celebration of life through reconciliation with death.
