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)

Also, the back side of the throne is not real. Once you look at it close enough, it is actually part of the painting.
