Keep our love alive, I'll never fade away

I continue to work my way through the Museo Frida Kahlo.

SAM_3780.jpg

Peeking into Frida Kahlo's medicine chest, or possibly just more art supplies. I know what Sal Hepatica is for, although I'm not sure why a person would have purified walnut oil.


SAM_3784.jpg

Kahlo's bedroom, with dresser, cabinet, and wall motto that I just don't understand.


SAM_3786.jpg

Bedroom radio! Featuring a (hand-made?) wood carrying case. Notice the pencilled in labels for the volume and channel dials.


SAM_3788.jpg

And here Kahlo's daybed, with what I bet you all think is a mirror right above her pillow.


SAM_3791.jpg

Nope! It's a display of butterflies!

Looking back at the gallery from the stairway leading from the daybed room to the courtyard.


SAM_3810.jpg

Snake sculpture on display underneath the stairs leading outside. There were some exhibitions from various non-Kahlo, non-Rivera artists there.


SAM_3815.jpg

Overhang with a continuous-loop documentary about Kahlo playing. It was in Spanish, naturally, although it had enough of the pacing and tone of an English-language documentary that between that and pictures of institutions I was following along with all the confidence of a white guy in a country where he doesn't speak the language.

Courtyard picture of Diego Rivera holding a seal for the reasons.


SAM_3821.jpg

I didn't see anyone taking pictures of themselves with their heads in this photo stand-in of Kahlo and husband.


SAM_3824.jpg

An activity set up in the courtyard as part of the temporary exhibit, about Kahlo's fashion design: rotate the columns to mix and match various of Kahlo's outfits.

And here's part of the temporary exhibit. This shows off braces, corsets, crutches, and other tools that Kahlo designed and used to keep herself functional.
