Frida Kahlo As Sensual Goddess Gaia, Our Nurturing Earth Mother

‘Gaia’ by Frida KahloI swear I hadn’t seen this splendid ‘Gaia’ painting by Frida Kahlo until searching for visuals to accompany Benjamin’s GlamTribale blog post about the Mother Goddess’. 

It is truly magnificent and sums up not only Goddess Gaia but also the objectives of Anne of Carversville and our artisan projects. 

‘Two Nudes in the Forest’ by Frida Kahlo

Frida’s paintings command the highest prices of any woman artist. Her subjects are deeply personal: femaleness, nature, feminism, childbirth, abortion and her own crippled persona. In 2010 I wrote:

Feminine principles defined Frida Fahlo’s intellectual landscape. Suffering and perserverance mingle with a reverence for green beings, erotic flowers, and womanly bodies. Kahlo embraces a Cultural Creative lushness of an existence not defined by materialism but by nature and sensualism.

Frida KahloFrida Kahlo died in 1954 at age 47, having endured more than 30 operations in her lifetime. Art was her therapy, as was fashion. We can only imagine the artistic estate Frida would have left if she had lived a normal lifespan. 

Kahlo was a great bohemian intellectual, hosting dinners for Leon Trotsky, poet Neruda, and Nelson Rockefeller. 

Everything about her is fascinating to me, but most of all it’s her ability to articulate ancient voices of women’s history — our lives, our contradictions, the aggression against us, our connectedness to nature. 

I love the story that Frida painted this round still life for Dona Soledad Orozco de Avila Camacho, the wife of Mexico’s president General Manuel Avila Camacho. The still life was destined for a place of honor in the dining room of the presidential palace, but this was not the fate of the 1942 still life. 

The sexual connotations of the fruits and vegetables horrified the good woman, who found the painting to be totally offensive and returned it to Frida at once. 

Frida Kahlo understood that food and flowers provide sensual nourishment that is the essence of our life energy. This is the message of Gaia, so brilliantly interpreted artistically by Frida Kahlo. ~ Anne
