HANDTASCHE WEEKEND TUTTI M&M´S
Decorative cardboard figure in the shape of a mermaid in a reclining position in turquoise blue. This piece was sculpted and elaborated by hand in the city of Querétaro in Mexico using the papier-mâché technique. Mexican artists express their art by sculpting fantastic creatures from their imagination. The figure of the mermaid plays an important role in Mexican visual culture and has its origins in a powerful and ancient goddess. Each piece is hand sculpted and painted with bright colors and organic designs that allude to the sensuality of the mermaid. Yet it is a beautiful and delicate decorative piece. Interesting fact: Tlanchana is a word that has its origin in Nahuatl, the language of ancient Mexicans. It means " mermaid, goddess of water, daughter of the moon". She is the lady of the water and represents the strength and femininity of women. The origin of "La Tlanchana" is prehispanic in Metepec Mexico. She was represented in a figure made of clay. There may be minimal variations in colour, shape and size. This is not a flaw but proof of real handwork and that it is a natural product.
