One of the elements that Civera introduces into her works, becoming a constant theme after 1980, is the circle, either as the protagonist of the work or as a shape that helps her delimit and exalt her intimate narratives, as is recreated in the painting Con Jumba (2010). The female figure (inspired by images from the mass media or, as in this case, her daughter) is established as the centre of the composition, an intimate scene where we find that play on tensions so habitual in her, the bold woman, reinforcing her erotic side through semi-nudity but at the same time involves being a fragile, delicate woman.
