“When I gave my first Nana exhibition, I called it 'Nana Power'. For me they symbolised a cheerful, liberated woman. Today, after nearly 20 years, I see them differently. I see them as harbingers of a new matriarchal era which, I believe, is the only answer. They represent an independent, good, altruistic and happy mother. I am not surprised therefore that they evoke such vehement emotions of love and hatred in people. Viewers are confronted with their own feelings towards their own mothers.” (Niki de Saint Phalle, in: Brigitte Reinhardt (ed.), Niki de Saint Phalle, Liebe, Protest, Phantasie, exhib.cat., Museum Ulm, Wilhelm-Hack-Museum, Ludwigshafen, 1999, p.50.)
