They include: elegant forked legs, a reference to the female world in which the forked clothes props were used to raise the washing lines, the perimeter seams that recall the bags of wheat and flour they used, the padding that evokes the mattresses sewn by women and the overlapping cushions, which refer to the stratification of the ancient culture of Matera, the frame shape is embracing and somehow recalls the social life in the ancient neighbourhoods.
