Ahh, Dali's Corpus Hypercubus.

I remember this because I first saw a reproduction of it -- as a third grader -- outside the principal's office. And I thought, our principal must be a tad off or I will have to study the painter's work when I grow up. Well it became true in both cases.

Vermeer's "View of Delft"

"Students," said Senior Wrangler morosely.”
