In fact it was an artwork for five people ? The average French in Die can not handle the sense or nonsense of these sentences, as he does not know the difficult cultural background. In the Caucasus this would make probably more sense, but printed f.e. on matchboxes and sold in shops and basars for 5 tetri, you couldn't be sure if those sentences would be taken as truth or as irony (as intended). Best regards, Hans
