The painting that is illustrated above is truly a master piece! This is in the view that it depicts the various aspects of the human life that can clearly be illustrated through the master of art through painting and various artistic works. The form that comes out clearly to illustrate the painter’s own life reflection clearly triggers various views concerning the daily living of human beings. The Mexican heritage illustrated in her paintings, leads to her to express the pain and the turmoil which had become a fundamental part of her life. This unfortunate happening occurs after, at age eighteen, a streetcar Accident left her crippled.
Her physical disability never repressed Kahlo's panache for theatrics, and this, combined with a passionate affiliation with her philandering husband, the fresco painter Diego Rivera, established her as a wretchedly romantic and exotic, this leads her to do the painting which clearly brings the concern that love is the fundamental theme in the human life and that what makes her to draw the painting.
First, the painting captures the eyes of the viewer in the context that it illustrates the aspect of a combining mutual relationship between a human beings and the nature. This is illustrated by natural environment that is in both the background and the front of the painting. This illustrates “The Love Embrace of the Universe” this is clearly shown by the roots of the vegetation in the surrounding of the painting. There is also a dog that is sound asleep in the in a huge hand. This brings out her historical view of the artist’s pets during her time. This clearly illustrates that organisms in natural environment depends on each other for survival. This is a symbolic art that brings out the dependency that was between her and her loving husband. This is in the view that he embraced her in all aspects despite the unfortunate accident that occurred rendering her pelvis paralyzed hence her ability to bear children is hindered.
In that literal view of the painting, there is a man being held in the arms of a woman. The man has a third eye in his forefront. This illustrates that a man also has wisdom to help a woman in their daily living. This is in relation to the fact that she was paralyzed in the general epitomes of life which left her in the context that only her man was the only figure to help her view ahead in the general view of life.
The artist also presents life, death, night, day, moon, sun, man and woman in that categorical view. The dichotomy of her deeply intertwined and joint view of the nature and its organisms together with the universe effectively shows a greater relationship between the nature and the things that are found in it. Hence it brings an interpretation of the relationship between the two powerful mythological beings in the universe.
Above all these, she keenly illustrates that the power of love and union is what joins all these aspects in the process of coming together. Hence, in the general view, the artist of the painting did the form of art in the view that she choose to present and drives the point’s home in relation to her own life. This clearly reflects her unfortunate quagmire in life that prevented her from acquiring the various statuses in life. Hence the painting historically remains in the heart of vividly bringing her life encounters.
