Title from dealer's description

"This book talks about overcoming struggles. The images of scars represent hardships of all kinds: from pain to loss, from emptiness to acceptance, from comfort to realizations of new incapacities in life. At the same time, all these images are surrounded by delicate laces and sensual curves that stitched together make us be reminded that life is a beautiful gift despite all the struggles we are faced to defeat"--Sandra C. Fernández, dealer's description
