Large pottery statue of Zapata by famous Mexican artist
and potter, Juan Torras. Torras popularized the the
La Catrina clay figure, a favorite symbol of the Day
of the Dead holiday. Torras was a well know painter
who discovered he liked working in clay in the 1980's.
He went on to create many fine pieces of folk art pottery.
This piece is an example of his work.
The statue is large, measuring 31" tall by 8 1/4"
wide by 5" deep at the base. Zapata is holding
his dog head sword and an ax. His jacket has the symbol
of the Mexican flag on the back. The piece is signed
on the base. Not sure of its age, it is in good condition.
The only problem I noted was that the sword was broken
near the hand, It was a clean break and it was glued
back right away judging by the condition which shows
no other damage other than the line where it was broken
