Hundertwasser comment about the work:
From the antipodes I faxed one sheet of typing paper, an ink drawing, per day for thirty days to a lady I was friends with; these could then be put together, six across and five rows down, to form a large consecutive picture. I began at the upper left and didn't know how I would go on drawing the next day: a procedure I had already followed in 1952 with the tapestry 133 Pissing Boy with Skyscraper. The thirty sheets were then copied on primed paper and mounted on canvas in the proper sequence and painted with mixed techniques, i. e., watercolour, acrylic paint, tempera, oil, lacquer and metal. This picture turned into one of my biggest adventures as a painter. As to the thematic material, which came about of itself, as it were, it is decidedly of a fairy-tale nature, as if from a children's book - a collection of Hundertwasser motifs. The dogmatic world of architecture refuses to concede that the architecture most fitting to man is to be found in children's drawings and fairy-tale books. It shouldn't be all that difficult to turn what children dream up into constructed reality. (from: Hundertwasser 1928-2000, Catalogue Raisonné, Vol. 2, Taschen, Cologne, 2002, p. 684)
