Girl with Death Mask Painting She Plays Alone by Frida Kahlo was a 5.75x7.75 inch oil on metal painting created in 1938.
A small girl around the age of four stands alone wearing a Day of the Dead style skull mask in a large empty field. In the background are mountains and overhead looms a cloudy dark sky. In her hands she holds a yellow tagete flower which was placed at the graves of the dead during the Day of the Dead festival and a carved tiger themed mask sits art her side.

The young girl is thought to be Frida as a child. The mask may represent her lifelong struggle with death and feeling of helplessness.
