Tikus means mouse in Malaisian. He was with Constant from 1990 till his death. Ever since Costant had picked him up from the compound the dog had not been from his side. When Constant passed away Tikus died a few days later.


Femme qui a blessé un oiseau avec une feuille morte


In 1990 Constant's dog Waldo died. It's uncertain whether this is a drawing of a dead or sleeping Waldo.

A small printed booklet with poetry by Gerrit Kouwenaar and drawings by Constant. They created it in 1949 and it was supposed to be a little joke. This is also one of the lines in the booklet: 'Everyone considers themself to be a joke, A joke is allowed' The words and drawings are an expression of the playfullness of their creators where sometimes the words came first and the drawings followed as a reaction and sometimes the other way around.
