A Chirico-like torso looks upon a figure on bed. This mannequin figure with amputated arms resembles 'De Stronk', main character in Paul van Ostaijen's book 'De bende van de stronk' (1965). While being unable to move and being watched by other men, De Stronk sees his wive cheating on him.
In this painting, Barion stresses the relationship between watching and being watched. The ubiquitous views in Barion’s work are reminiscent of surveillance images of CCTV cameras.
