The Dream 1940

Frida-Kahlo_The-Dream
Frida Kahlo painted her dreaming of a time long after death, when plants would come out of her grave. The explosives on the skeleton above symbolized that at any moment they could explode making Frida’s dream of death a reality. Frida saw death as a fact of life and as something to be faced and accepted. Which connected with her Mexican culture because death is festive and celebrated on the day of the dead.
