Frida De Los Muertos

Frida De Los Muertos, watercolor and watercolor pencil, 22 x 29 cm, 2015

Frida De Los Muertos, detail

I painted this for EBSQ's Day Of The Dead themed show. It''s a portrait of Frida Kahlo in Day Of The Dead make-up. It's based on her "Self Portrait with Monkeys" so she is surrrouned by spider monkeys with  decorated skull heads - her exposed heart is being caressed by the monkeys and the veins of the leaves are attached to the veins of her heart symbolising how nature fed her soul.

Prints are available from Etsy and Society 6.
