The source of inspiration of the author was the scientific theme each of these women worked on, they are represented on 12 canvas 1x1m together with a brief explanation about the subject and the scientist in question, further developed by the author in a videotape shown on presentations. The titles are clearly related to their theme. eg LISSE MEITNER Nuclear Fision.
