          Working consistently on the image of women, Mauro Malang Santos, reveals all the intriguing and amusing qualities that have greatly enticed this human being to men.  Malang’s “women” are indeed figures of humor and delight. They are either portrayed as affectionate mothers, a group of gossiping women, or vendors.  However, the rigidity of their shape provides necessary tension and saves the image of the woman from being picturesque. Truly, Malang’s women are artworks of exuberance and sophistication.
