"Hola." This is a character crocheted doll of Frida Kahlo. She is well known for her self portraits, and turbulent relationship with another artist, Diego. She lived in Mexico from 1907-1954. I purchased her diary that was published in 1995. Interesting and visual book, more like an art journal.
I crocheted her a couple months ago, and stood her up next to this vintage coffee can, I purchased at an antique store. The can is full of broken and discarded crayons. The basket next to the can, is one that I wove about 10 years ago, out of electrical wire. The circular box is a book that opens up with a ribbon attached to the circle pages. There are only pictures, so the "reader" makes up the story. I have alot of fun....don't I? :0
