Mexican Paper Cutting: La Catrina and the Labyrinth
Mireia Sallarès

One of the first things which fascinated me about Mexico was its folk art, specifically ‘los papels picados’ or paper cutting. It is a type of popu- lar folk art made from tissue paper worked with hammer blows and normally used in popular festivals especially for the Day of the Dead, on November first. Mexicans place it on altars they have made for dead family members.
