Frida Self-Portrait with Monkeys Pin
Flora and fauna feature prominently in Kahlo’s paintings, often representing larger themes within her work. In this painting, Kahlo is surrounded by four monkeys, which she kept as pets in Coyoacán. Her pets have frequently been described as surrogates for her maternal energies.
Frida’s menagerie comprised chickens, sparrows, macaws, spider monkeys and parakeets, Bonito the parrot and a fawn named Granizo.
