Martin Melchor: Torito Fireworks

Fabulous Cat with Torito by Martin Melchor. These charming figures are very popular and sought after by collectors. Beautifully designed and painted. Toritos are very popular at traditional Mexican fiestas such as Oaxaca's Guelaguetza. Toritos, little bulls, are figures made of paper and wire that have fireworks. The figure is carried on the head and shoulders of a man who swings the torito wildly and chases after other characters in the dance. The fireworks are lighted and create a stream of sparkles. Oaxacan Folk Art at its best!
