Frida Kahlo (1907-1654) was a Mexican painter whose folk art paintings, often self portraits, mixed realism with fantasy. Because she painted so many self-portraits, her image has become iconic, so leave it to Craftsters to portray her image in many ways.

This doll by pilarfarmer is a beautiful tribute to Frida, with her brightly colored clothing and her prominent brow. Details like her jewelry and hair make this handmade doll special.

LovelyMiss created this hanging Frida shrine for a lucky partner in a Craftster swap. Colorful flowers hang from the bottom of the shrine.
Frida even finds herself represented as a dottee by cmarion3.

 

 

Frida’s Mexican heritage often inspires people to create shrines in her honor. Stifflersmom used loteria cards, doilies, and beads make this shrine.
mandit1990 made this cute pocket-sized Frida. Even though it’s tiny, it’s embellished with lots of great details.
