Hundertwasser's comment on the work

The best way to kill the cars isto let them disappearat the crossings. You make a cross which becomes a cross roadwhich becomes a round about. The traffic circle is a trap the cars drive into the spiralget smaller and smaller and vanish in a point. (from: Catalogue Hundertwasser 1973 New Zealand, p. 54)The analogies of the concepts cross, the crucified, street crossing and death are obvious. (from: Hundertwasser 1928-2000, Catalogue Raisonné, Vol. 2, Taschen, Cologne, 2002, p. 553)
