NOTE

"NIki de Saint Phalle is a priestess that can handle the contradictions of life in the form of death, who knows how to dominate despair and fear by making them emotionally acceptable, and gentle, even joyful and pleasurable, who knows how to attract the eye to make us discover poetry, fairy tales and children's stories while adding magic inspiration, constantly opposing and comparing it to the realities and brutality of society."
Pontus Hulten, Niki de Saint Phalle, Exh. Cat. Bonn, Kunst and Ausstellungshalle, 1992, p. 13)
