Year VII

N° 49

             "What are the boundaries between an individual and another? This is the subject of the article that has studies about the influence of cells from other individuals in our body.

             Celebrating the Sweet Expects Core (group of pregnant women happening at Frater), we have, in the second article, a series of paintings about the humanized childbirth.
