The woman holds a heap of blank paper on her lap and is surrounded by various black and white fabrics of different origins. The work refers to the form and meaning of the Pietà, a religious image of the Virgin Mary holding the lifeless body of Christ on her lap. Yet, the work does not represent Mary but is left open for interpretation since the skin of the woman's head, hands, and feet is transparent.
