There was then a process of simplification into overlapping, perforated, vertical bands riveted together. (…) Tatou is French for ‘armadillo’: the mammal famous for its structure made up of plates of bone covered with a protective layer of horn. ‘Tatou’ has an emotional sound to it, which I think is consistent with the emotional function of this object.”
