A stunning and cleverly constructed work, your Omnipotence.

I am particularly impressed by your taunting title, which challenges the viewer to find a rational explanation for the seemingly miraculous manner in which some of the objects have been arranged.

Most wondrous and ironic work, Gary. Made me laugh first and then ponder and I couldn't help saying: has is come to this! Yes, we know that it has, unfortunately.
Reflects great technical and aesthetic ability and intellectual effort.

Gary's back. God's in his heaven; all's right with the world!
A gorgeous, highly involving image. Impeccable attention to detail, as ever.
Best wishes,

Like a hybridisation of Steenwyck and Magritte, quite brilliant.

Nice to see your perfect works again here in the PUG. I like the magic lighting, the fine ideas and the perfect arrangement of the objects. I also like the square format of the picture.
