The basis of the design is a woman’s body consisting of two large breasts and a large belly with a child’s face depicted on it.
The drawing is divided into two by interlinked circles creating waveforms representing birth contractions. They also form a part of the child’s head, consisting of two black eyes, a round nose and a mouth inside the belly. Above the child’s head we see a type of Doppler effect further representing birth contractions.
The division of the drawing in two is a deliberate move that encourages interaction with the piece – when rotated through 180 degrees, the image depicts the birth position and the beginning of labour: the amniotic fluid comes free and so begins the initiation birth.
