In this specific drawing, we have a naked woman sprouting from a plant. Her root-like arms make an allusion to the idea of Mother Nature and that women and nature are one. In turn, the quote expresses that women are invincible and no matter how many times we are knocked down, we will get back up and fight for who we are.
