There's a Grammy award in Beyonce's hair. It has 6 marks denoting the 6 Grammy's she won at one event! There is also a hidden 21 denoting her total Grammy's won!
Pink and gold are Beyonce's favorite colors.
The headpiece includes a beautiful white rose and a 100 dollar bill. The scarab is a nod to African culture.
The yellow top is painted to hint at her album "Lemonade".
The blue hair, cowry shell and feather represent her mixed heritage: French, Indigenous and African.
The bottom of her outfit reflects her top during her iconic "Formation" performance at the Super Bowl.
Beyonce's favorite number is 4. Throughout the painting, you will find a number "4," Roman Numerals IV, and objects in groups of four, like these pink flowers.
Beyonce is from Houston, Texas and she is a basketball fan. The Houston Rocket's colors are red and white so painting the microphone because... duuuh, it is Beyonce... with the Rocket's colors and their logo underneath just made symbolic "sense."
