Bean Team Start
As the unrepentant bean-referee gives the cue to “take off,” the muscles of the rowers strain in anticipation for the race to start. However, as indicated by the illusion of movement and the static quality of the picture that the artist has conveyed, the bean-canoe will not “take off” until it is ripe!
The artist invites the viewer to enjoy the decor of the intertwining bean vine, replicating the metal grids of medieval houses. Re-phrasing W. Goethe, he would say, "Guys, stop for a moment! Look how beautiful it is!"
