If the image is looked at carefully, it is seen that they were cut out of a photograph to paste them on a basic background decorated with the legend Les Horribles Cernettes. It is not the work of an expert, but it shows care. And, references aside, the composition is reminiscent of the female pop music groups of the eighties such as the Bangles, in the United States, or the Flans, in Mexico (where he is the one who signed this text).
