One more present from Johannes J. Musolf. This small collage has the title "Für wahr". Johannes used a small part of an advertising about pipe-tobacco. As he explaines, "Für wahr" normaly is not used in german language nowadays. It has been used in novels and dramas in former times. For example somebody would say: "Das ist für wahr ein vorzüglicher Wein" (This is truely an excellent wine). "Für wahr" means true, really or in truth.

The head in this collage is cut out of original paper that is black on the backside and was used during the war to close windows when light was inside a room to protect the house against American or English bombers. It was called "darking-paper".
