These paintings, Still Life With Percival I & II, are based on drawings of the Channels of Mars by Percival Lowell. Lowell, a noted American astronomer, put forward that these channels were evidence of life on Mars. When no further evidence of these channels was ever found, it was surmised that Lowell was drawing the back of his own cornea superimposed on the planet by a fluke of Lowell's telescope.
