Hundertwasser's comment on the work

This is the counterpart of 134 99 Heads, in the same format, the same technique, the same kind of wood-particle panel, and I was at pains to treat the subject, "Steamer", in the abstract. (from: Hundertwasser 1928-2000, Catalogue Raisonné, Vol. 2, Taschen, Cologne, 2002, p. 236)
