A breast, a breast with arm, a head, a neck, black hairdo … the figure of a woman put together of its constituent parts. The artist has done a decent job, at least for the portion we see in the picture, which was the part of the sculpture most to my liking when I saw it at the 2005 Bex Triennale. Leisurely leaning back she looks frankly at something or, more likely, somebody. Defiant, unashamed … Oh those breasts!

  1. The face is not very feminine, is it?
