Description

ID: A surrealist painting with 3-D objects rendered in 2-D effect, giving a flat impression. At the top is a pastoral landscape under a blue sky, with a waterfall on rocks spilling into a cutaway view of a lake with a sunken statue and plant life visible under the surface. On the side of the lake and underneath are multiple layers of different scenes depicting a mix of interior and exterior tan walls, staircases, windows, doorways, and figures in the midst of doing something. At the bottom the scene is a sewer system showing tunnels of water and fish.
