This puzzle belongs to the puzzle series: hyper-modern art
The two friends in the gallery of Hyper-modern art are still discussing.
"You know what, to certain extent I start enjoying this Hyper-modern art, but I still think it lacks something important."
"And what should that be, my friend?"
"Beauty. Aesthetics. It is all well and good that the observer has to fully engage for deeper understanding, but I still would like to, well, like an image. It should be pleasing to watch."
"Hmm, yes, I get your point. But maybe the next example is more to your liking."
They move on to the forth room of the gallery, where a gigantic painting of 11x16 metre fills the whole side of the room.
"See what we have here: The painting is called
'Nature tells a story', and I think it is rather pleasing, don't you?"
"Well, it for sure is impressive... And yes, it is also nice. But what is the story nature wants to tell us here?"
"See, now we need our HUD again..."
