Henry Ford Hospital 1932

By: Frida Kahlo

In this painting  she’s laying on a hospital bed with six things attached to her lower stomach all with umbilical cords. Here she is depicting what she went through with her miscarriage, the umbilical cords are attached to her uterus, a baby who was her son, a snail, a flower and metal medical instrument it seems like. In this painting it seems like she’s in pain laying on the bed with all the things she’s missing and longing for in her life.
