Discussing a similar work from the same year Nissim Gal writes: "This work was made after the period which Lavie called "Tapiesian", in which the picture was still built upon the dialects that develops among the various components of the whole: free drawing of lines that drip down from above, curl and coil around an object, into a pattern of a coil or a scribble that constitutes an amorphous mass. Another kind of line creates a more serrated pattern. In both cases the ongoing rhythm created by the pattern weaves into the knit of color and turns the reading of the work into a musical experience." (Nissim Gal quoted in Mordechai Omer (ed.), 90 Years of  Israeli Art: A Selection from the Joseph Hackmey - Israel Phoenix Collection (exhibition catalogue), Tel Aviv Museum of Art, 1998-1999,  page 402)
