The statue is part of Fabre's Hermitage exhibition "Knight of Despair/Warrior of Beauty". In his series "My Queens", Fabre depicts the most important women in his life. "Soon we'll have a woman running or country. I wanted to give her a central spot. I gave her a carnaval's hat, a Belgian crown: the crown of Belgian vitality, of daftness."

Court didn't know about the statue. Elisabeth has been said to find her first statue "quite amusing".
