"Les Femmes et l'Argent Facile" (Women and Easy Money).

Shows women in all phases: mature, young, older, rich, poor; one dressed in high heels and stockings looking like a prostitute. Money symbolized by cowery shells dropping down from heaven, piled upon the earth. The right hand corner shows an old man lusting after women.

This work is one of 40 paintings in an exhibition called “Contract with the Earth”, which the Groupe Kasobane completed in 2001.
