Die wunderbare Palette, die den Beschauer in grenzenloses Erstaunen versetzt, wird von einer kilometerlangen Schlange zerrissen, dem ewig fließenden Fluss. Er hat die Farbe der Bäume, die rechts und hyperlinks ein Spalier bilden, angenommen. Die Luft hier unten ist betäubend, aber sanft wie die Wolken, die über den rot gefärbten Himmel ziehen, seine Farbe annehmen und mit ihm verschmelzen."

Die weißen Statuen wurden von einem weißen, strahlenden Licht umhüllt, alles rundherum strahlte weiß, nur sie nicht. Mit ihrem hauchdünnen roten Seidenkleid tanzte, schwebte, lieferte sie eine quick artistische, aber erotische Darbietung zwischen den leblosen Figuren."
