In this work, a group of women sitting in a row join their hands in unity and friendship.  Yet the expression of each figure show sadness, confused, and anger, cries to unite.  The confused expression of each face is strengthened by the tense movement of their legs stretched in clothes.  The figures formed in deformation become the expression of the strong expressionism.

Dolorosa Sinaga is well known with his works that describe the woman strength, both as an individual figure full of life burden as well as agroup configuration fighting for freedom.  The socio cultural background of Indonesia this time coloured with the violation of human rights invites the artist to express it.  The meaning wanted to be expressed through his works is to remind us that in state of defect the woman really have the ceaseless energy.  The woman energy is close to the process of giving birth and life maintenance.
