This method is used to jolting effect in the great "Epiphany" (Adoration of the wise men) 1996. In this work, SS officers surround a mother and child group. To judge by their looks and gestures, they appear to be interested in details such as head, face, back and genitals. The mother and the child group finds its direct models in sculptures like Michelangelo's "Maria with the Child", 1503-05, St. Mary's Church in the town of Brugge, Belgium. The arrangement of the figures clearly relates to motive and iconography of the adoration of the three Magi, such as were common especially in the German, Italian and Dutch 15th century artworks.
