Viva la Vida
CROSS STITCH PATTERN READY TO DOWNLOAD, DESIGNED BY Barbara Ana Designs
This cross stitch pattern is a tribute by Spanish designer Barbara Ana to the Mexican woman painter Frida Kahlo. The portrait mirrors the artist's own self portraits with the signature eyebrows, large dark eyes, and elaborate hairstyle interwoven with large flowers. Frida Kahlo lived her life to the full and Barbara Ana has chosen appropriate lines "Viva la vida" to complement her portrait of the artist.
We love the baroque and esoteric feel of this design. A pale and somewhat abstract sun sends its golden rays above the artist's head. The colorful flowers are evocative of the rich tropical nature of Frida Kahlo's homeland. A small spider monkey sits on the artist's lap.
