Colectivo Moriviví: “Se aprende independencia haciendo arte”

El que disfruta de ello añade la música, interpreta el movimiento dual de las hojas que en segundos se cierran al mismo compás del ser tocadas. El nombre en latín de Moriviví es Mimosa Pudica.

While some people beeped their horns and expressed support for the work that was going up, there were also plenty who shared the sentiment that these nude women shouldn’t be painted in a public space.

But making these women visible was precisely the point.
