Nude in bed with oranges

This Cuban painting shows a naked woman on a bed with slices of orange. I don't know what the artist had in mind, but maybe the woman is contemplating the men in her life.
Media naranja - an orange half - is slang for one's partner or better half. Perhaps the woman is holding a letter from a boyfriend. The smaller orange slices are men who didn't measure up. And maybe some of the slices are smaller because the men weren't quite as portly as the woman. Who knows...
