"This painting was taken down on the last day of e exhibition on the orders of the police, on the grounds that it was insulting to the Greek army. If we had not taken it down the Military Police would have come and smashed everything to smithereens in the Zappeion where it was displayed. Note that the same exhibition contained a mythological painting by K. Xenakis, depicting a satyr with an erection, which did not disturb the police at all." — Yannis Tsarouchis
