1980s. Automatic drawing (faint pencil; contrast upped in Photoshop), by Chris Wayan

A sort of stroboscopic sketch of the loop of life, seen from the fourth dimension of time: a woman giving birth to a child who grows up to become herself giving birth to a child who grows up to become...

It's the core lifecycle with all the external dramas (even death) stripped away. For this core cycle is the dynamo that drives all the rest. And everyone seems to forget that, even the women who sustain it.

Certainly the men would like to forget that in a sense they're essentially... inessential.

A woman gives birth to herself
