the background is a "telegramm" (telegram) on which is printed in the left corner above the nazi-germany eagle, a symbol that was used by the national socialist (nsdap/nazi) government of germany or an organization closely associated to it. on this telegram is stick down a beige stripe of paper on which it is possible to read the word "hochzeit" (wedding") which was written down by hand. more beneeth a collage of a woman consisting of the head of an animal, the upper part of a naket woman with one breast covered, legs of a woman without feet and with a oak leaf that is covering her crotch. this is probably refering to eve from the bible who was also completly naked beside one fig leaf covering her crotch.

l'arrière-plan est un télégramme sur le coin gauche duquel se trouve l'aigle nazi. une bande de papier beige portant l'inscription "hochzeit" (mariage) écrite à la main est collée sur ce télégramme. plus bas se trouve une femme reconstituée, composée de la tête d'un animal, de la partie supérieure d'un corps de femme nue, de jambes de femme sans pieds et d'une feuille de chêne qui cache son entrejambe. il s'agit peut-être d'une référence à eve dans la bible.
