A reproduction was made in 1920 and published in 391 (March 1920). Later Duchamp drew in the missing beard and added an inscription at the bottom: "Moustaches par Picabia, barbe par Marcel Duchamp". The name of the piece, L.H.O.O.Q. (in French èl ache o o qu), is a pun, since the letters when pronounced in French form the sentence "Elle a chaud au cul", which can be roughly translated as "She has a hot ass".
