This male figure with a fierce gaze just barely fits into the almost square picture plane. Its head is about as large as its body. The composition is built up of flat planes and lines, which are intersected by a spine cutting straight through the body. Its arms spread wide apart and genitals boldly exposed, this colourful character forces itself on everyone.

On display in room 3.3
