The strength given off by the gaze of the central figure in this piece is unprecedented; we can almost speak of a terribilitá in the manner of Michelangelo. In front of a large red circle that reminds us of the Japanese flag, our protagonist stands defiantly. Dressed in Tibetan clothing, and medallions in her hair, she presents us with the extreme-Asian folklore, juxtaposed with the feathers of her headdress, her painted face and the skull on her right sleeve, the result of the most current influences that the artist incorporates into his paintings.

It is not the only piece with these characteristics. Romulo Royo's Neo-Japanese style, as explained by Jaime Romero, Doctor of Philosophy and Japanese Aesthetics, in numerous publications including the well-known Japanese cultural magazine Ekiyô, is a clear example of this aesthetic style, which mixes cultures and draws on the most beautiful details of the Eastern and Western worlds.

Other elements that are evident in the artist's work, such as the spikes behind the back of the central figure, are already part of the artist's own style, which speaks of dualities in his work, such as strength and fragility, calm and chaos.

“The body in crisis is increasingly present in our daily lives,” notes MoMA PS1 curator and associate director Peter Eleey, who headed up the “Greater New York” 2015 curatorial team.
