Size: 87 x 44 x 20 cm


Sculpture made of Ulldecona stone from the new figuration period. This is the body of a pregnant woman, with no face and without legs, presented in profile. The sexuality, unlike other Subirachs’ works, is not shown from the erotic point of view but from the reproductive aspect. Although the figure is sculpted in negative, the egg inside the uterus is in positive.
