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."
