Commissioned by Magritte's close friend Harry Torczyner, it was subsequently offered to the Israel Museum in Jerusalem.
The present work is a remarkable example of Magritte's power of transforming ordinary, everyday images or objects into an extraordinary, mysterious composition, characterised by the clarity of expression that marked his late oeuvre. It combines the immutable solidity of the rock, symbolising permanence and memory and the ever-changing elements around it.
