The sculpture was the last public work of Joan Miró. The work has to do, formally, with others of female motif. It is a vertical and complex form: at the bottom, there is a rounded part of organic character as a natural element that rises. As if it were an onion or a stem that ends with a kind of outbreak, ponc or mushroom head. However, above all, there is a very different thing: like an unequal and sloping roller, empty, everything of white trencadís inside, shining when it receives the light, crowned with a kind of yellow crescent, of well -defined horns. Color is used in a varied form, with effects made by trencadís. It has been indicated by an alleged meaning by establishing various relationships between sculpture and different organs, creatures and elements of nature. The vertical black opening has been linked to a vulva and the shaft as a whole seems to have a phallic shape.
