'A large glass shrine contains blue water. The glass lid covering it bears an elaborate old German inscription cheerfully describing the exact procedure of a macabre experiment carried out on a bird: The feathers of the poor animal are dissolved in a water bath containing acid, whereupon the water turns blue. The liquid is reduced to a blue stone with which the bird is then dyed blue. … The plumage disintegrates into the colour of romantic longing and the bird is deprived of his dignity and remains tied to the world.'
