Hundertwasser comment about the work:
Trees and people are closely related. Both have roots and feet as a sign of their attachment to the earth, both strive upwards with foliage and longing. When they stand close together, the result is a forest or a crowd. (from: Hundertwasser 1928-2000, Catalogue Raisonné, Vol. 2, Taschen, Cologne, 2002, p. 178)
