SPECIAL NOTE "Pierre Paulin often spoke of the petal-like aspect of the Tongue, which was very much on the Flower Power spirit of 1968. He also liked to recall Harry Wagemans's abrupt change of ind about it, after seeing the delight of his adolescent son and his friends when they came across this 'petal' and discovered they could be comfortable lying on it at floor level."
