The definition of art imitating life. The iconic face of the renowned, beloved, and tortured Frida Kahlo, creatively interpreted into this wall hanging sculpture. We call this the Tropical edition, sculpted from kiln fired ceramic. Each wall hanging sculpture is equipped to hang on the wall, and includes a set of hand painted ceramic earrings.
10”w x 14”h x 5”depth
Hand painted with rich and life like colors by our talented Devotion artist Rafael Pineda. To say that Rafael has been inspired by Frida throughout his life as a master ceramist would be a mis characterization. Kahlo's talent to transform life experiences into art unlike any that existed before it, this ability exists within many talented artisans of Mexico. At times Rafael pay's homage to the complex painter of portraits whom inspired generations of Latin American artisans.
