The chromed postcard kiosk, which looks as though it is melting in the summer heat, sells post-cards to visitors with designs of the kiosk itself. The surrounding sculptures and the museum's scenic environment, which are reflected in the kiosk’s distorted mirror surfaces, are essential elements of the postcard’s motifs.

The sculpture can be read as an ironic commentary on the souvenir industry’s commercialization of historical and cultural sites: ”Warm regards” or ”Warm greetings” to one and all!
