The mural was created with a special technic different from what Art Mural used for other murals in Brussels. They used the Sgraffito technic 2), where a layer of synthetic cement tinted with black smoke was covered with a layer of 3 mm thick white cement in which they engraved making the drawing lines reappear again. This technique is also used frequently in Art Nouveau 3).

The mural is based on a design made by Schuiten.
