Diego Gave Them to Me - Forever Frida Painting Series - Frida Kahlo Oil Painting
There are so many meanings for the representation of the Magnolia that can refer to Frida. Maybe that is why she favored them. Here are a few.
The Pear Cactus Flower is a representation of life and death existing in many of Frida Kahlo's paintings. Also in the right of the flower arrangement there is a open calla lily which is not very obvious at all. The artist put it there most likely because calla lily is the favorite color and flower of her husband Diego Rivera and it showed up in lots of Diego's paintings.
The Magnolia Tree was named after a French Botanist Pierre Magnolia in the 1600’s. The scent of the flower depend on which variety of Magnolia is used. Each color leads to a different meaning. The White Magnolia Flowers stand for purity and perfection.
During the Victorian times, the magnolia flowers symbolized dignity, nobility, poise, and pride.
The strength of its bloom is also symbolic of self-respect and self-esteem.
Since these flowers represent durability, strength of character, and bearing, they are widely used in weddings.
Magnolias are also associated with the life force and therefore can be sent over on the occasion of birth.
These flowers also represent a love of nature.
