My Nurse and I

This is my version of Frida Kahlo's "Mi Nana Y Yo" ( My Nurse and I")

Frida's mother was unable to breastfeed her because her sister Cristina was born just eleven months after her. She had to be fed by a native Indian wet-nurse whom the family hired for that sole purpose but was later fired for drinking on the job.The relationship between them appears distant and cold, reduced to the practical process of feeding.
