The work analyzes and calIs attention to a woman's image regarding social phenomena like prostitution and cultural stereotypes. This piece was part of a conceptual project for public space; it was designed to be placed at different locations of Havana that turned into sites of illegal prostitution. The sculpture is a hybrid between old colonial furniture and the representation of a woman's body on her knees. The elements of wood draw the curve of the vertebral column, supporting the weight of people seated on it.
