Drury, a former student and friend of Wittgenstein, in which he publishes essays that demonstrate the influence Wittgenstein had on his own thinking and that of others.What is also being referred to is the popular children's game of plucking off and counting the petals of a flower while reciting "He/She loves me, he/she loves me not...."Medium: sculpture (iron, bowl, ceramics)Year Created: 2000
