MY PRESENT TO PROFESSOR MENG

Prof. Dr. Alexander MENG, one of our senior physician is going on pension. Tomorrow a festival will be celebrated for him. So the nursing sister of our ward had the idea to make a sculpture composed of flowerpots for him and so she asked me to paint his portrait on one of the flowerpots ... what I naturally did, hoping he will enjoy it.

Dr. Meng is a wellknown specialist of acupuncture here in Austria. He was one of the first physicians of our ward who accepted me without reservation ... although I was already 49 years old and a so-called "lateral hire" when I started my work on the neurological ward which was my first civil job I ever did ... :-)
