Curioscillotropy, of all the 4 Crossroads paintings, is the one that refers most clearly to the theme of "Caravansary" (from Burning Man 2014).  The painting is a Rube Goldberg like machine that plays with history.  It shows the Mongols being expelled from China, the galleon trade ships opening a passage to the East, Crusades as the foundation of European cultural imperialism, and Maori's erupting forth apocalyptically to reap an atavistic revenge.   All these things are here - and more displayed in the playful free associative manner that runs through all of the pieces.
