About the Artwork

Those who reach eighty years of age suck little children; those under eighteen suck grownups. It seems as if man were born and lived just to be sucked.


Las que llegan a 80 chupan chiquillos; las que no pasan de 18, chupan a los grandes. Parece que el hombre nace y vive para ser chupado.
