Hundertwasser's comment on the work

Similar to 615 and 623, a kind of self-pity for no particular reason. A house becomes round for no reason. Wispy black clouds cover eyes, nose and mouth. A man in blue sits under a roof picking his nose, which has a lot to do with the penis, of course. Add to that a "dunkelbunt" sky, a conglomeration of chimneys on the yellow roof and windows of blood. What more do you want? (from: Hundertwasser 1928-2000, Catalogue Raisonné, Vol. 2, Taschen, Cologne, 2002, p. 500)
