Owl is a kind of self portrait. It is said that I am a walking encyclopedia. Owl has a (now faded) text on it’s forehead: “Je raakt achterop Felix, je weet teveel, dat is niet modern” (“ You’re getting behind Felix, you know to much, that isn’t modern”) (from the book ‘Het theater, de brief en de waarheid’ by Harry Mulisch).
