Catrinas are another traditional symbol of the Day of the Dead, although a relatively modern one. The artist Jose Guadalupe Posada did a satirical etching about 100 years ago called "La Calavera Catrina" and now catrinas an important symbol of the Day of the Dead in many parts of the country. Mocking death but also facing its reality are a big part of the holiday for many Mexicans.
These catrinas were set up next to the main Cathedral in Guadalajara. Different groups and people decorated them (like the Red Cross catrina).
