In Prole do Bebê (2000) each piece has a different shape. They are organic, nearly amoeboid shapes that Tunga names as ‘modrongos,’ weird beings. Such individual and independent bodies have protuberances and cavities, in an allusion to sexuality.

Made in fiberglass, the pieces are also covered in make-up, as a trace of the performance Make Up Coincidence, made for the inauguration of the gallery in 2012. In it, a naked couple did the make-up of the pieces at the same time they would apply the products to themselves.
