    This work is one of the original watercolours that were bound in La Lune en Rodage. Edited by Carl Laszlo; Hundertwasser took eight of his watercolours and cut them into 240 pieces that were bound together to create the book. It was published in a numbered edition of 150, plus 65 unnumbered specimens for the collaborators and some of these collages, the present work included, were later removed from the book and sold separately. The present work was part of a watercolour that served as the original template for the linocut Drei hohe Häuser from 1953.
