      my spirit animal.... = Frida Kahlo - Self-portrait as wounded deer (1946) In this painting of a young stag fatally wounded by arrows, Frida expresses the disappointment which followed the operation on her spine in New York in 1946, and which she had optimistically hoped would cure her of her back pain.

      #Frida Kahlo, The Wounded Deer, 1946~ In this painting she depicted herself as a young stag with her own head crowned with antlers. This young stag is pierced by arrows & bleeding. At the lower left corner, she wrote down the word Carma, which means destiny or fate. Just like her other self-portraits, Frida expresses sadness that she cannot change her own fate. #MrBowerbird

      little deer, by frida khalo 1946. frida khalo often used visual metaphors in order to conve sorrow, rathern than an expression here we see her peirced byn 9 arrows . Kahlo transformed her body into that of a deer to show fragility of her body. She also depicted her sufferings through the use of arrows, just like the portrayals in paintings or statues of the "Lady of Sorrows". The young stag and the branch beneath are the focal point of the painting. (bonnici, m 2012)

    • Glenda Molina Torres

      Frida Kahlo, The Wounded Deer, 1946 Later in her life, Kahlo was interested in ancient Eastern religions and mysticism, and The Little Deer is an assimilation of her Mexican and European heritage with these ancient beliefs. The image is of Kahlo’s head placed on top of a stag, which is pierced with arrows. The arrows no doubt refer to her own pain and suffering due to her injuries, as well as her injurious marriage to Diego Rivera. At the bottom of the painting, Kahlo has written “carma,” alluding to these ancient mystic beliefs. She also combines the eastern belief system with Aztec. An ancient Aztec symbol, the deer symbolized the right foot, and in this she was alluding to her injured right side, the foot of which had been crushed in a bus accident, and right leg being fractured in eleven different places. One year before her death, her right leg was amputated up to her right knee, due to complications from gangrene.
