This is an homage to the greatest Surrealist painter, the inimitable Frida Kahlo. She is famous for her uncompromising depiction of the female experience and form.
In this self-portrait Kahlo she was having an affair with Trotsky, and so felt beautiful, as you see. To much of women’s self-image is predicated by the acceptance of men.
She hold a bird because birds represent flight, and flight is a symbol of empowerment. She is surrounded by flowers because they represent fertility and creation. Kahlo was unable to conceive, but her creativity is unquestionable. Additionally the butterfly represents transformation and new beginnings.
