Following a brief career as a fashion model, artist Niki de Saint Phalle created figurative sculptures that defied the ideal of feminine beauty. Her "Nanas" reflect the idea that beauty, confidence and strength come in all sizes, shapes, and colors. Inspired by the Nanas, these sculptures are formed on plastic bottle bases and can bend into a variety of poses.
