Description

Fountain depicting a family scene in a pool of water. "'Mother Saar" lies naked on a sofa and pours the contents of a wine bottle on the floor. That the punk behind her goes, the woman does not seem to care a bit. On a very high table behind her the plates, bowls and cups are still stacked. Down below, her five children romp about: the baby greints, two play with the ball, and the big sister with deceitful expression stretches her arms to her little brother, as if she wants to push him right to the table leg.
