Frida Kahlo Sirena Mermaid Doll from Sew Bee Mine

This one of a kind colorful hanging 3D Frida Kahlo Sirena Mermaid Doll was created from my original collage/drawing, professionally printed on 100% cotton, hand and machine embellished with sequins, glass beads and various trims.
Frida has a stuffed parrot on her shoulder. 
 20 of these images were printed. The first attempt went into the trash. This is the second one, a success! 
I will be making more, 
 each a one of a kind
She is 16" high. she is sold
I spent some time traveling in Mexico and Central America when I was in my 20’s (the seventies!) and was mesmerized by the spectacular embroidery and weaving from village to village.





I used to dress exactly as Frida did, although at the time I did not know anything about her. I've always worn my hair in a bun with flowers, even as a teenager which is why my father used to call me "Orchid Head".
I loved to wear huipils (traditional Mexican blouses), big skirts, flowers in my hair, wild earrings, big necklaces, and lots of silver and turquoise rings. (Actually, all these laters I still pretty much dress and adorn in a similar way!) My hair is always in a bun with flowers unless a hat is on my head.
I drew Fridas huipil from my own huipil that I got in Oaxaca Mexico, which I still have after all these years. 






















Also while in those parts of the world I learned how to carry things on my head, wash my clothes in the river, and vowed when I had my own children I would carry them on my back, which I eventually did with all three of them. 


                                “Hooray for Frida!” “Hooray for Art”
