This image is compact of all kinds of division which were refererred to in the artist's previous work. The Berlin Wall, here standing for the divided city, is shown in parallel with a dissected version of Florence in the upper panel. The surrounding frame transcribes fragments of skin from postcards, recapitulated from works alluding to the repellent system of apartheid in South Africa.
