The Broken Column.

Name: The Broken Column.
Artist: Frida Kahlo
Year: 1944

As a result of a crippling bus accident at age 15, in which a handrail went through her body from one side to the other at the level of the pelvis, Frida has often represented her body as a mix of flesh and objects. In The Broken Column we can see into her opened body: a broken ionic column substitutes the spinal column.
