If Frida Kahlo is one your favorite artists and you love action figures, then this is your lucky day!
Today Is Art Day is a social media-based brand that shares stories about artists and artwork with the mission to "make art and art history more fun and accessible to a wider audience." As the brand continues to grow, they created a line of action figures; the first figure was a tribute to Vincent Van Gogh — detachable ear and all.
Now, Kahlo is the second legendary artist as part of their Art History Heroes Collection — and to say it's adorable would be a flagrant understatement.
Here she is in all her five inches of glory:
Today Is Art Day launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the cost of making it a reality for people to purchase their tiny Frida.
Spoiler: They reached their $14,587 goal — $4,000 more than that, actually — in only two days.
Of course they nailed her staple unibrow.
In order to have the rights to use Kahlo's image, they partnered with the Frida Kahlo Corporation, which was founded by Kahlo's niece, Isolda P. Kahlo. "We’re dedicated to educating, sharing and preserving Frida Kahlo’s art, image and legacy. This Frida Kahlo action figure project aligns with our mission and so we choose to support it," Beatriz Alvarado, head of international affairs at the Frida Kahlo Corporation, said in a press release for the figurine.
They also added a fun and unexpected element to her signature flower crown: scent. That's right, it smells like "wild roses."
Scratch 'n sniff has come a long way, folks.
And if you looked closely at the images above, you would have spotted a teeny monkey on her back.
It was known that she kept monkeys as pets and eight of her self-portraits featured them too.
Even though the monkey isn't detachable, there's something that is...
...her surrealist heart.
We're pretty sure it's an homage to her famous "The Two Fridas" self portrait.
To tie it all together, the packaging for the doll features facts about the iconic Mexican painter as well as miniature artwork.
The attention to detail is impressive.
We can't get enough of it!
"She was an incredible, groundbreaking artist. This figurine will help raise awareness around her work, story, and personality," said David Beaulieu, CEO and Founder of Today Is Art Day.
