During his visit to the famous museums of Russia, he drew attention to the fact that their employee sitting in the halls, remarkably consistent with the picture, for which they are looked after, and even in some way complement them.

Andy was so shocked by this observation that not only took photos, but also spoke with each of the women. He learned that the caretakers often can choose from any pictures they would have to sit. The reasons for which they have chosen this work, called different from spiritual closeness to the art to "it's better than sitting at the entrance."
