In this surreal play about the German painter Franz von Stuck, the Sphinx, a powerfully erotic figure from one of his most famous paintings, confronts the Artist late at night to present him with a riddle which is actually the riddle of his life. His Daughter, his Step-Daughter, his Wife and his Mistress eventually appear as he attempts to understand what his life has signified. The relationship between love, art and betrayal and the elusive nature of reality are all part of the Artist's attempt to answer the riddle. Mysterious, erotic, dark and funny.
