About the Artwork

He who lives among men is irremediably vexed. If he wants to avoid it, he will have to take to the hills, and once he is there, he will realize that living alone is also a vexation.


El que viva entre los hombres será geringado irremediablemente; si quiere evitarlo, habrá de irse a habitar los montes y quando esté allí conocerá tanbién que esto de vivir solo es una geringa.
