"They thought I was a Surrealist, but I wasn’t. I never painted dreams. I painted my own reality." - Frida Kahlo
There isn’t a Mexican woman/ grandmothers over the age of 70 who doesn’t have a shawl like this one.
Both of my grandmothers had one. If there’s was any memento that I would have wanted, it was that shawl.
Sadly, my father’s sister had gotten rid of ALL OF HER POSSESSIONS when she passed away.
