In the fighting against microbial infections that nowadays and persistently affect the human being, the hell is empty, all devils are here (resistant microorganisms). However, they can be destroyed one by one with different natural defenses (antimicrobial peptides-AMPs) causing an almost euphoric explosion on them (lysis of microorganisms).

As well as the modern art, the great battle against infections is the result of the constant and colorful experimentation (developing research) that triggers diverse individual responses and feelings, avoiding the abstraction in a figurative way to stay ahead (potential therapeutic role of AMPs).In a figurative sense this modern art painting could represent the efficient bacterial lysis produced by the binding of AMPs on their outer membrane.
