'She celebrated her uniqueness.

A lawyer for Romeo added that Mattel did not have the rights to use Kahlo's image, according to the news agency.

Mattel announced on Wednesday, March 7 that Kahlo, a painter known for her searingly intimate portraits as well as her defiantly unplucked eyebrows, would be included in its newest collection of Barbie dolls.

However, representatives of the late artists's estate claim that Mattel does not have the right to use Kahlo's image, while Kahlo's great-niece Mara de Anda Romeo is asking - through her lawyer - that she be consulted in redesigning the doll.

Critics have slammed Mattel for their representation of Kahlo, pointing out their decision to mostly eliminate her famous unibrow, ideal her famous look and glamorise her elaborate and traditional Tehuana-style dresses.

"We will talk to them about regularizing this situation, and by regularizing I mean talking about the appearance of the doll, its characteristics, the history the doll should have to match what the artist really was", Sangri said.
