Frida Tehuana doll

Inspired in Mexican old dolls, called "Lupitas". These dolls, were made in the times, that the dolls were made of porcelain. The poor fathers that can buy them, create their own version with paper.

She's wearing a "Tehuana dress", a dress used by Frida Kahlo many times, an embroidery dress from the state of Oaxaca, Mexico. She's and articulated doll, so she can move legs and arms.

This is my tribute to these old traditon of Mexican dolls made of paper. ;)
