A rare and wonderful find depicting Día de Muertos Frida Kahlo and measuring approximately ten inches high by six inches wide, it is signed by the Master. It is in excellent to near mint condition.

Alfonso Castillo Orta was born into a family where for generations his family before him worked with clay. His grandfather, an expert potter, inspired in Alfonso Castillo at an early age the desire to follow in the family tradition. In 1995, the work of Alfonso Castillo was published in “The Great Masters of Mexican Folk Art”. His career as a famed Mexican ceramicist spanned almost a half century before his passing in 2009, evolving from the traditional Adam and Eve Trees of Life to the more whimsical, colorful Mexicanique folk art forms we see in the works of Alfonso Castillo today.
