Das Bild heißt Moses Nucleus of Creation (1945).
ich erkenne rechts noch:
Zeus, Alexander der Große, die Dreifaltigkeit, Hl. Maria, Jesus Christus, Cäsar , die Venus und den Teufel.
Nofretete, Stalin, Lenin und Karl Marx.
Moses als Baby im Weidenkorb
Das hab ich noch bei Tate Modern gefunden:
The imagery Kahlo uses is an eclectic blend from ancient Aztec to modern Mexican, religious metaphor and fantasy, and penetratingly observed reality. The most complex of her paintings, Moses (1945), is split into three sections with a sun, a foetus and Moses in his basket forming the central register. On either side, Kahlo paints imagery from all the main religions, ancient artefacts from Mexican, Aztec and Egyptian culture, as well as portraits of modern figures such as Mahatma Gandhi, Vladimir Lenin, Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler. Revolutionary masses flank the babies, as in post-revolutionary Russian art, and the picture itself was inspired by an essay by Sigmund Freud. It is one of the larger pieces and certainly one of the most detailed and complete documents of her inspirations and influences.
