Here is the most creative and free Arqués, where the movement, the color and shape that are in their immediate surroundings, suggest new expressive aspects to better understand how the human body, whether the figure represents through the male and female. Needless to tangibly show the faces and bodies of the characters, but the sinuous and stylized forms create the impression of movement and they sensed their presence.
