The term “Pachuco” refers to men who dressed to impress in 1930s Mexico as well as other areas in central and south America. With their zoot suits and elegant shoes, Pachucos were seen as decadent party goers and dandies.

Hand made of terra cotta, these traditional figures shows every day life characters involved in mundane activity, and are usually placed on altars for Day of the Dead.

The Day of the Dead (El Día de los Muertos, Día de los Difuntos or Día de Muertos in Spanish) is a traditional holiday in Mexico and many South American countries. Based on a syncretization of ancient pre-Hispanic and Christian beliefs, this celebration of the memory of deceased ancestors is celebrated from dusk on October 31st through November 1 (All Saints Day) and November 2 (All Souls' Day).
