Notes that may help someone

* there are 12 different keys in the foreground

* there are 16 cogs on the tree

* there are 3 different colours for branches on the cog tree

* there are 4 real cogs (with a number of sub-cogs)

* there are 4 cog shadows

* the bottom most shadow appears to be a shadow of the real cog next to it

* the upper two shadow cogs mirror the lowest cog (folding the picture frame into quarters would allow them to overlap)
