The power of these women is heart stopping.
Francisco Zúñiga carves such deep sensuality into his powerful female forms. Their gender is palpable. The sculptured women inhabit the room. You feel them watching and listening. Their power is directly rooted to the earth, the core of all life, these are the original earth mothers. So respectful, full of dignity and courage. You wish they could cradle you, hold you, comfort and restore you. They are literally heart stopping in their magnificence.
