Hundertwasser's comment on the work

In the Bottlehouse, where the walls are made of bottles, under a grass roof, it is wonderfully cool in the summer, and there is classical, usually Viennese music from the New Zealand concert-programme station, with no commercials, coming out of a South African radio with no batteries which can be charged by hand and also runs on sunlight. In the winter I heat with wood from my own trees. I don't think Dürer, Breughel or Schiele had it so good when they were painting.
