In turn, Thunder Mountain monument in Nevada reminded me of Watts Towers. We passed it on our epic Thanksgiving week road trip (passed it gong 'what is that!?', turned around and drove down the dirt road to take a look. It was built by a Cherokee who stopped there and didn't drive on, from salvage and trash, as a place to live and a commune and a commemoration of the things that have happened to the American Indian tribes in the last couple of centuries. It's an oddly moving place - and a fascinating contrast to the planned Arcosanti we visited on the same trip.

The bottle windows also remind me of the Hundertwasser toilets in New Zealand
Although some of the bottles there are side on, which gives you more light!
