Description of the artwork «UNISONIC (Unique eunuch ivy)»

The title of the painting were the words from a poem by Francis Picabia - experiment with rhythms and sounds. "The unique eunuch" in French sounds like "UNanditand"thus, the most accurate translation into Russian will be "UNISONIC" (without a space as a combination of the words "unique" and "clever"). In this case, when translating, it is important to preserve the principle of verbal games as meaning the name carries. The word "ivy" Picabia added, because some species of plants are hermaphrodites.
