The sculpture was created during Marisol’s Pop art period. It features 15 freestanding, life-size figures spread about. Each model wears an up-scale dress, referring to its wealth and upper-class. Marisol uses her face in reference to some of the figures’ features. None of the models interact with one another. Rather, they face away from each other. This work of art is exemplary of Marisol’s feminist perspective. The life-size women adhere to the feminine, submissive norm and do not deviate from it. Marisol is critiquing their self-absorbed, submissive nature. She uses randomly assorted items in the construction to represent the instability of what it means to be a woman.
Medium: assemblage of 15 freestanding, life-size figures and three wall panels, with painted wood and carved wood, mirrors, plastic, television set, clothes, shoes, glasses, and other accessories.
Location: Toledo Museum of Art
