“Botero is able to establish a sense of monumentality. The sinuous lines, the play of volumes, light and shade, a play of reflections, make his sculptures seem almost alive, with a feeling of perpetuum mobile. The combination of never-ending movement and eternal femininity imbue his sculptures with a dynamic plasticity.”(J. Sillevis, The Baroque World of Fernando Botero, New Haven, 2006, p. 246)
