The drawing and the three table legs are covered with gold leaves. The concept of gold and snow relates which relates to the Grimm's fair tale "Mother Hulda" where Marie becomes the Goldmarie after having worked for the snow lady. The writing around the table emphasizes this in French: "Mother Hulda let's it snow from the bottom of the well" - all the seasons return, spaces return, too, so gold it also about circular and not linear time.
