was wollen sie ... all' die Frauen? 

what do they want ... all these women?

„ The adult male figure is therefore partially omitted in Maria Teresa's works, and if any allusion to it can be discerned other thanin blurry backgrounds, this is due to the appearance of pregnant women and in rare cases of children. These women seem to have become pregnant on their own, in certain situations the man may seems to have been replaced by animals of markedly male symbology, such as cockerels or bulls. In other cases, however, some animals also possess a female symbology, such as elegant but agressive herons in flight.“ Dr. Rui Carita, from the catalogue A Mãe das Mães, 2008
