These characters are made in the the style of Latin American carnivalesque characters named mojigangas and cabezones, which have big heads.

There were brought to Mexico by the Spaniards around 1600 and later introduced around Latin America in a variety of ways, taking on different manifestations according to the style of the local artisans and the materials available to them.

Our Cabezonas are made with all things recycled and inspired by a variety of women figures: Frida Kalho, Colombian Palenqueras, Pachamama or Mother Earth. The heads and costumes have been made by hand  and look stunning in a parade, street festival or puppetry event
