28x20 inches or 71x50 centimeters. Peña's lithographs convey the ironic elegance of the phallic. They are celebrations in which semen, saliva, and multiple orifices also participate. There is in them an enjoyment of the masculine, as the line traces the architecture of anger, the graphism of a violent and vociferous carnality, even as the poetry names, almost delicately on occasions, each of the scenes where the power and ferocity of battle could be observed.
