Tribute to Frida Kahlo

  Impressive Arbol de la Vida by Master Potter Tiburcio Soteno showing scenes of Frida Kaklo's world known paintings such as: Las Dos Fridas (The Two Fridas), Naturaleza Muerta Con Perico (Still Life With Parrot ),Flor de la Vida ( The Flower of Life ) Diego y Frida ( Diego and Frida), La Tierra Misma (  The Earth Itslef )

When Tiburcio was a child he got to meet Frida and Diego. They used to visit his parent's workshop. Tiburcio's mother, Modesta Fernandez created wonderful  trees of life that were greatly admired by Frida and Diego. He taught them how to use better pigments on their arboles so the paint wouldn't fade.

Many of Modesta Fernandez's trees of life are exhibited in the Museo Frida Kahlo, the blue house in Coyoacan where Frida and Diego used to live.

There is now an exhibition , "Great Masters of Mexican Popular Art",  featuring Trees of Life by Tiburcio Soteno. The exhibition was shown last year in Casa de America, Madrid, Spain and it is now at the Crocker Art Museum. (May 23 - July 27, 2007).
