This playful sculpture was created by Emo Verkerk as a friendly joke. It recalls the first impression he had of the Russian artist Arkady Nasonov when they met for the first time in the late 90s. Though back then the language and cultural barriers between the two were a challenge, the artists soon became friends and did several projects and exhibitions together.
