This Mexican Old Taxi (Beetle Volkswagen) with Frida Kahlo and Diego's in front of the car, is handmade with vibrant colours. A powerful piece and a great gift for yourself or someone special giving a kitsch touch to your home.
Frida Kahlo once said to a friend, “I have suffered two serious accidents in my life, one in which a streetcar ran over me….The other accident is Diego.”
She was referring to her husband, Diego Rivera(1886-1957), the world famous painter and active Communist. He painted large-scale murals in Mexico, New York City, Detroit, and San Francisco. Diego was 21 years older than Frida and their marriage in 1929 offered Frida, a budding artist, to move not only in elite Mexican artistic and intellectual circles, but those in Europe and America as well. But the price Frida paid for marrying a renowned “lady chaser” was high. Their marriage was tempestuous. They divorced once and remarried a year later; they were separated several times.
