Coasters Inspired by a Mexican Folk Art Hero | Frida.
The artwork on these coasters is inspired by the Mexican folk artist Frida Kahlo. This particular design was inspired by various different self portraits painted by Frida, hence the name of these coasters "Pieces of Frida". It was common for Frida to invoke the pain she endured from tortuous experiences throughout her life and cast those emotions and feelings onto a canvas.
