Description

This one-of-a-kind hoop art is a detailed portrait of artist Frida Kahlo, as inspired by Kahlo’s 1943 painting “Diego in My Thoughts.” I drew the image (it is not traced), painstakingly hand-embroidered her face on soft brown Ultrasuede (and added some stuffing to give it a raised, three-dimensional appearance), and embroidered Diego above her brows. I recreated the lace head adornment of the Tehuana, which Frida wears in the painting, by repurposing recycled lacework and doilies and adding ribbon and pale pink beads, and I embellished it with glittery and sequined flowers and pale green leaves. Beaded silver tendrils branch out from her head. The bottom lace hangs slightly past the wooden embroidery hoop, for an “outside the frame” look (underneath it, I have stitched my signature). The design stands out against a burgundy backdrop. Each piece of hoop art can be hung from the brass fixture on top or propped up on a stand. The back is covered in turquoise felt, so none of the knots and reverse stitchwork show. I put a lot of time and effort into this lovely Frida and hope you like her! I will wrap your purchase in tissue paper and a colorful ribbon. I will include insurance when she is shipped.
