I've always been a fan of Frida Kahlo, her life and paintings. What an amazing woman. So here's a Frida  dotee from one of her paintings. It is hard to see, but there is a monkey on one shoulder, a cat on another and moths in her hair.



And her traveling frame:

What a lovely tribute to Frida Kahlo! I'm familiar with the painting you based this off, and you really captured her likeness!

After seeing this Dotee, and the shrine to her another member made recently, I finally looked Frida up on Wikipedia the other day to find out what she was all about.  She did indeed have an interesting, and in some ways quite tragic, life.

Anyway, I think you did a good job of capturing her likeness and design motifs in dotee form, well done!
