He translated 8 of his works into large scale sculptures in 3 dimensions enabling him to express the true nature of his work with strange and incongruous objects and patterns. The sculpture is based on La Joconde painting, 1960, composed of three independent curtains, one of which Magritte’s works’ inherent sky and clouds was painted upon, and a ringbell also found in many of Magritte’s artworks. Magritte used this curtain motif in numerous paintings and drawings during the last decade of his life.
