"Ett antikt krukfragment utgör vasen till denna skulptur vars kraftfulla, kompakta och nästan hotfulla veck har en enda, rund öppning. Detta "öga" kom Eric Grate att assiciera till den grekiska mytologins Polyfemos, en människoätande, enögd cyklop, nu mest känd för att Odysseus råkat i hans våld men undkom genom att berusa jätten och utsticka hans öga." Pontus Grate
