La Calavera Catrina (‘Dapper Skeleton’, ‘Elegant Skull’) is a 1910–1913 zinc etching by famous Mexican printmaker, cartoon illustrator and lithographer José Guadalupe Posada.. The image depicts a female skeleton dressed only in a hat befitting the upper class outfit of a European of her time, a satirical portrait of those Mexican natives who, Posada felt, were aspiring to adopt European aristocratic traditions in the pre-revolution era. — Wikipedia [Mas…]

Are elongated fingers a sign the being also had an elongated skull?
