Hundertwasser's comment on the work

A picture which means a lot to me. I even bought it back from a Canadian collector under difficult circumstances. It is painted on several pieces of wood which I had found in the streets of Paris and put together. (from: Hundertwasser 1928-2000, Catalogue Raisonné, Vol. 2, Taschen, Cologne, 2002, p. 680)
