    About The Work

    This rare and stunning Marina Abramovic limited edition hand signed silkscreen makes a highly collectible and memorable gift.  It also looks gorgeous when framed as a silkscreen.  Mint condition in original packaging. This work can be worn - or it can be framed flat or in a perspex box as a stunning signed silkscreen. New in mint condition. "I was truly inspired by Frida Kahlo and her Self-Portrait with Monkey," says Marina Abramović about this beautifully rendered limited edition silk scarf, which was produced by the Museum of Modern Art in collaboration with luxury Mexican lifestyle brand Pineda Covalin. Marina Abramović, was the subject of MoMA's highly acclaimed retrospective Marina Abramović: The Artist Is Present in 2010, selected her Portrait with Scorpion (Closed Eyes) (2005) for the project after Pineda Covalin gave her a scarf from her collection that featured the aforementioned Kahlo work. Hence, this personal accessory became not just an image of female empowerment but also a sort of imaginary dialogue between two female masters.
