• Image of Yo soy la desintegración

Frida Kahlo in her diary noted that she felt that she embodied disintegration. Her dying wish was that her mortal remains be cremated. During the cremation, she was dressed in a huipil dress and laid on the gurney to the oven. Diego in his memoirs would comment that, "As the cries of her admirers filled the room, a sudden blast of heat from the open incinerator doors caused her body to bolt upright. Her hair, now on fire from the flames, blazed around her head like a halo. Frida's lips appeared to break into a seductive grin just as the doors closed."
