"For me, from my point of view, I don't mind if it falls over. [...] If you break the glass, you replace the glass. If the sheep falls out, you can always get a new sheep. I guess in a thousand years, people probably won't know what the hell it is. Will people still want it? They'll last for longer than my lifetime. That's good enough for me."
