Marina explains, "I was kicked out of the school ‘s cafeteria as a kid in France for refusing to eat veal. Maybe it was not a coincidence after all. There’s a list of ‘ingredient’ in the upper left-hand side of the painting reminiscent of people mechanically buying without wondering where or what it comes from. The ‘veal’ calf here is the victim, immobile and surrounded by numbers. The numbers can represent ‘money’ as well as the numbers on his ‘Tag’ symbol of an inevitable death and a ‘life’ of horror. It says ‘No olvides’ which means – ‘Don’t forget’ in Spanish, your convictions."
