Media Echo

"The work has the potential to become an unchanging benchmark in an environment that will undergo major changes".

"Actually one expects in a concrete plant enormous grey concrete blocks formed from a hard material. At BB Beton and Bauwaren in Zeulenroda these are also available. But there is also something extraordinary, namely art.

"Powerful but friendly fairy tale creatures now occupy Vårberg."

"The project […] marks the city’s largest work of art and its biggest artistic investment to date."
