The title of this piece refers to a Venezuelan saying. “A Child that is Born Pot-Bellied, Will Remain so even if He’s Made to Wear a Girdle.” The saying describes a person with a behavior that is assumed will never change. This image was inspired by stereotypes of machismo layered with a tender gesture. In that sense, it expresses a human complexity that the saying does not.
