Catrina and swallows, the return of the migrating bird is a sign that spring has arrived. In the past, swallows were believed to actually carry spring with them as they flew. Spring is associated with change, new beginnings and new life. As the creature that brings spring to different parts of the world, swallows are a symbol of both newness and the return of joy and easy times.
"Catrina” has come to symbolize not only El Día de los Muertos and the Mexican willingness to laugh at death itself, but originally catrina was an elegant or well-dressed woman wearing the familiar wide brim hat with feathers. Here she is simply adorned with roses and ribbons. She represents the everyday woman laughing at death.
