I am thinking of an image. Using Photoshop, paint, or your favorite image editor, create and post the image I am thinking of (any reasonable logical equivalent).

To ensure this post isn’t flooded with a hundred pictures of cats, here are some clues:

  1. Your image should contain an English phrase, including a word beginning with ‘r’.
  2. Your image should contain the following rebus. You may shrink this to make it fit, it does not need to be legible.

what is this

  1. As part of your post, please mention the solution to the rebus provided in (2). This is to help others understand the puzzle’s solution. I am ultimately looking for a 4 word (not longer) phrase starting with ‘T’. Your image should align with the theme of the rebus.

1 Answer 1


The image in the background of the rebus is

Child with a Dove by Pablo Picasso

The solution to the rebus is

Ceci n'est pas une pipe


ICE (backwards), NEST, letters 1 and 2 from PAblo, SUN, and a | (PIPE) symbol (backwards). I'm not sure where the C on the start and the E on the end are supposed to come from though. OP note: the main part is nested between the top and bottom of ChildwithadovE.

which is the text found in

the famous painting "The Treachery of Images" by Rene Magritte.

I think the final answer (a four word phrase starting with T) is

The Treachery of Images

So my answer is:

this image
