This Cuban art work is an ink drawing in blue tones created by Reinaldo Pagan in 1999.  Its subject is the perceived role of women in society and in the world of man.  It features the woman’s duality as both the mother figure – a slave to the concept of family, nurturing the child and also existing as an object of desire and sex for the man.  Both feed hungrily at her breasts.  But the draining of woman by these two roles of servitude, not necessarily chosen by her, leaves her injured and bleeding by the blade which cuts into her flesh.

This drawing measures 6.5 x 7.5 inches.
