1. Start with a load of texture:clay straw dirt paint
2. Combine with an outline of architectural structure for contrast: temple pyramid etc
3. Stick a big lead thing on it
4. Sign it with some serious referential cursive writing
5. Make sure to add some bullshit alchemy history myth Poetry as the content
6. Do it all ten times bigger

But once you get over the clotted vistas and plodding perspective, it does get a bit monotonous. Too bad they didn't include some of the artist's recent cow paintings (I'm not kidding) - 20 years in rural France has edged him slightly closer to Dubuffet it seems.... :D

Here's Dr. Profundis in front of one with his model!

Here's Dubuffet's Cow With A Subtle Nose from 1954, for comparison.
