    Now that we've had a chance to see the full artwork from where the "Fair Warning" cover was derived, does anyone know the name of this piece?

    I know the artist had some severe psychlogical problems, but I don't know the name of the piece.

    William Kurelek did the painting. I've been buzzing around the net trying to find the name of it, but haven't had any luck. A few months ago I took out a couple of books on Kurelek from the library but didn't see any mention of the picture there either. I emailed Brad and asked him where he got it and if the band has ever considered making a poster out of it.

    I went looking for that work elsewhere and found some other stuff by the guy - fairly normal looking stuff - kids playing in the snow, all that crap. But couldn't find that one.

    I believe the piece is called "The Maze."

    Yep - from www.thelancet.com:

    William Kurelek (1927-77)

    The maze (gouache on board, 91cm x 121cm), by William Kurelek, is on show in the Bethlem Royal Hospital Museum, Beckenham, Kent, UK. This autobiographical picture was painted in 1953 when Kurelek, at the age of 26, was a patient at the Maudsley Hospital. It shows his own head cut open to reveal a series of scenes from his life.

    Where on that site did you find the information posted? That is a very cool picture, and at the same time very disturbing. We should start a thread in the opinions to let people interpret it the way they see it.

    ...And it wasn't as good a look at it as Bradman has.

    Mark, it's in the square that's right below the guy being punched in the face. In that square, it's in the bottom left corner.
