"This engraving combines two elements. What the plate expresses is equally true on a world wide, universal basis as it is on a personal, individual basis.
An almost monstrous effort, pushing with pompous seriousness towards one direction against obstacles. While out of the same center struts a little silly giggle in the opposite direction.
In other words, an enormous effort with a ridiculous result."
