Virginia Aparicio is a sculptor from Mexico City. She uses clay to model what will result in the peak of her manual labor. She then forms a mold, with the traditional use of running wax, after that, the casting.  More important than the process is the sensuous result of her work. At first, one sees a comparison with the sculptural figures of Francisco Zuñiga. It is no wonder because she studied under Zuñiga during his final year of teaching.

Virginia manages to achieve exuberant beauty, of corporeal flesh, with curves that make up the characteristic structure of women from the tropic, of well-understood Mexican women of generous, fleshy bodies and expanding configurations. Although her sculptures are within the stipulations given by Zuñiga, she has eluded the anthropology of poverty created by the mentioned sculptor: She is completely devoted to the exposition of feminine beauty, both as a goal and as a means, and through it she achieves symbolic communication.
