eight nipples


With charcoal pencil (for incense smoke). Large creature and worshiper with censer from "Adoration (Der Schmerbauch)" ["Adoration (The Potbelly)"] by Alfred Kubin, ca. 1901. "DADA siegt!" means "DADA triumphs!"—a slogan seen often on Dada publications.

I have no idea what the blue oval with the eyeball? tree? fish? is about, but it was right there after "DADA siegt!"
