The fact that the accompanying product with the logo is completely “water-based”, serves, according to the author, as a hint of some kind of discrepancy with reality for someone’s selfish purposes. The symbolic souvenir product, damaged and lost at the place of its use is not visible in the space depicted by the author, despite, he invites the viewer’s imagination to independently recreate the complete picture (don’t do this), leaving visible the ambiguous sink drain hole with cracks. The author also transfers onto the shoulders of the viewer the responsibility for creating plumbers, who will have to remove the stuck souvenir product from the place of its use.
