Reminiscent of Magritte's painting Les Valeurs Personnelles, 1952, the painting Le Tombeau des Luteurs depicts an oversized red rose inside a room. The rose completely fills the room and there is no space left for any other object. A window on the left wall lets light into the room and lights the rose casting a large shadow behind it.

Is the rose oversize or is it the room that is in miniature? Magritte uses size to make the familiar surreal.
