FORTALEZAS DE LA MUJER, acrylic on canvas
This painting was recently obtained by the Museo San Ramon, Universidad de Costa Rica.
The painting depicts the 24 human strengths, written on the umbrella, which covers three women in different activities. The women are dressed in the three primary colors, to emphasize their "primary functions" in the life of the community. The woman in blue has a bookcase with books behind her. In the original, it is possible to read the titles, which are the names of women writers, painters, and one sculptor: Camille Claudel, and one photographer: Yahida Malhulla. The women's lives are reflected in the pool of their tears.
