This is extracted from A View from Iden (1929) by Paul Nash.
This painting has several elements that suggest all was not well with repainted. Noticed the shadow of the pile of wood hunch represents fallen humanity.
The pile has 25 pieces in the bottom row and it is stacked up 15 rows tall.
How many pieces should there be in the top row if each row has one fewer than the row just below it?
When the number of pieces of wood in each pile is one less than the number of pieces of wood in the row just below it, how many pieces should there be in the pile in the painting?
