Frida' s Parrots mixed media hand purse by WiLd PeArLy

And now, my very-very cool designed hand purse!!!. I named it "Frida's Parrots" in symbolical way, cause it reminds me of a self portrait painting of one of the world most famous artists Frida Kahlo... There are so many ways to be interested in Frida Kahlo, who was born a hundred years ago and died forty-seven years later, in 1954, than simply to look at and judge her paintings, as paintings!… There is no doubt that Frida Kahlo is a piece of multicultural theater. As such, she was an irresistibly exotic subject for photographers, and also for herself. But, of course, she did know how to keep it and still does. That "place" is pretty much everywhere now, wherever her art is, in Mexico City, in Philadelphia, not to mention on the Internet, where there are countless thousands of Web sites dedicated to her. And because her images, especially her self-portraits, are like no others, they stay with you, travel with you. You want the Kahlo experience? You don’t have to wait. Close your eyes, and bring her face into your mind, where you are always first in line!… Her self-portraits are about her gaze, as subject matter, technique, and content. And her pansexual charisma, shadowed by tales of ghastly physical and emotional suffering, makes her an avatar of liberty and guts. ” AndrĂ© Breton praised her art—with enthusiasm marked by condescension—as “a ribbon around a bomb.” In point of fact, the ribbons and other feminine adornments that she renders are, themselves, rhetorically explosive. In her self portrait “Me and My Parrots” (1941), it combines with sharp tonal contrasts of warm color to convey invisible moistness, as of a summertime, full-body, delicate empathy. AND NOW JUST A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE PURSE DESIGN! ;) The colors are vibrant and full of contrast just like in her paintings! . Earth tones combined with wild, almost “toxic” ones. This purse is also ECO friendly cause it was made of 100% recycled felt! The list of other materials consists of: 100% cotton fabric (exterior+interior), neon colored plushy pom-poms, orange sparkling tulle, fluffy colorful yarn, hand painted - feather made butterfly, hand made polymer clay "moon face" (FrIdA's face!) pendant with a lot of glitter+rhinestone on her forehead ;) ; all finished and preserved with a wonderful gloss!. There is a colorful beaded tassel with a big polymer clay bead that has a lot of tiny emboded mirrors...silky shiny orange decorative rope, wired plush and funky wood handles! The purse is lined with 100% cotton decorative fabric, with a magnetic snap closure to safely close away the goods. Here are the purse measurements: Height: Approx. 11.5 inches Width: (side to side) approx. 10 inches, (front to back) approx. 6 inches Handle heighth: 6 inches EITHER FRIDA'S, YOURS, MINE,..EITHER OURS, ...THEIRS... THE PARROTS ARE ALL ABOUT FREE SPIRIT & FREEDOM!!!. LET THEM SPEAK UP FOR YOU! ~* THIS DESIGN IS OOAK AND 100% HANDMADE *~
