The mind of a young artist explodes into bold color in this luxurious silk scarf. In this keystone of Obelisk's rococo revival, flowers by Rachel Ruysch and insects by Maria Sibylla Merian* wreath a striking portrait of a 12 year old Frida Kahlo. Taken by her father Guillermo Kahlo, we see young Frida six years after she contracted crippling polio and six years before the bus accident that would force her to grapple with the chronic pain that haunted the rest of her life and work. Even at 12, with a wild, tragic, brilliant life ahead of her, there's a deep intensity and reserve in these eyes.

I know, I left out the skull by Pieter Claesz, which nods in momento mori. Extra points if you can identify Frida's halo...
