Artist's Description

Frida Coyolxauhqui
Acrylic on Canvas by Jorge H. Elias
18 × 24 in

From Wikipedia:

“The pregnancy of Coatlicue, the maternal Earth deity, made her other children embarrassed, including her oldest daughter, Coyolxauhqui. As she swept the temple, a few hummingbird feathers fell into her bosom. Coatlicue’s fetus, Huitzilopochtli, sprang from her womb in full war armor and killed Coyolxauhqui, along with her 400 brothers and sisters. He cut off her limbs, then tossed her head into the sky where it became the moon, so that his mother would be comforted in seeing her daughter in the sky every night.”


To me, Frida is the incarnation of Coyolxahuqui. She loved the moon and had a tragic life.
