This painting of Frida Kahlo depicts her love of animals and includes symbols from some of her famous works.

Frida Kahlo had polio as a child, and was seriously injured in a bus accident when she was 18. She married Diego Rivera, a man 20 years her senior. She had two monkeys, a parrot, three dogs, two turkeys, an eagle, a black cat and a fawn as pets.

This scene aims to portray her at a happier moment in her life. (Ref: N. Murray, Frida with Granizo, (1939), Source: Wikipedia)
