Work > Maternity Leave: Para-Natural Pregnancies

By: Kristen Sanders

The Aquatic suit embodies the character of a prehistoric hominid with a semi-aquatic lifestyle who, some several million years ago, used the first stone tool. The open stomach reveals its watery womb and its long head hair provides its infant something secure to grasp onto while floating in the waves. This character counters the assertions of past anthropologists that only male hominids were capable of important inventions because maternity was deemed incompatible with discovery.
