Description This is my homage to Frida Kahlo. Orginally this was a watercolor. Here the artist is surrounded by elements of her beloved Mexico, images of ancient gods that transform into clouds and the mountains, prickly pear trees, skull, corn and a pyriamid to the sun. Upon her face is a hummingbird and this image is similar to one that she drew of herself. Her eyebrows become the wings of the bird.This is a very colorful piece!
