In her own words...
Barbara Shikler: Just the reference to creation. A humorous one. You giggled when l realized that that was what you were doing....When l saw the two hands out of Michelangelo, and then tied it together with the figure of man and woman.
WeIl, that is a kind of a wry, sly detail, isn't it?.... A quote.
