another Frida self-portrait
I am doing a bit of research regarding huipiles and thus am taking a good look at Frida who wore them daily. But today, more than huipiles, what interests me about Frida is the glorification of her monobrow referred to by her husband, Diego, as “raven’s wings”. Facial hair for Frida wasn’t something repugnant. To the contrary.
Without a doubt, Frida was making a statement not just about her own image but also a statement about the indigenous women of Mexico.
The third eye is the inner eye and directly related to the pineal gland. Though not visible, it gives visibility via insight. Awakening the third eye is a pursuit of those seeking enlightment.
Frida’s emphasis on her monobrow was further indication of her need to go beyond the senses and the physical pain she was subjected to. Her self-portraits were not about appearance but about the pursuit of conciousness. About “Know Thyself“.
