Hundertwasser comment about the work:
While I was painting the village from above up near the "Nose", the ascent to Leopoldsberg, the air-raid siren sounded. I decided to stay in the sparse forest. Suddenly there was a rustling of the tattered leaves, and shrapnel smashed into the ground all around me. I held my drawing case over my head. I could have been dead. I brought a big piece of shrapnel home as a souvenir. (from: Hundertwasser 1928-2000, Catalogue Raisonné, Vol. 2, Taschen, Cologne, 2002, p. 88)
