Blue skies and white clouds take our mind to those painted by Rene Magritte.

Here, one of Magritte’s ‘characters’ is portrayed in the bottom right hand corner looking out from a maze.

While the inverted ‘Amerigo Vespucci’ is sailing from New York along the top of the picture, we see various things in flight (amongst which a hot-air balloon, horses, Bleriot’s aeroplane and… a yellow submarine) and an upside-down Church, the apse of which is being torn off by a tractor on a cloud.
