In picture C.3, found in the section on Flesh in Le Corbusier’s ‘The Poem of the Right Angle’, the viewer occupies the body of a man lying in an ambiguous interior. He seems to be looking at an interior landscape where a woman is peering out towards an opening that reveals a passing cloud.

We can see the man’s feet and a menhir, which is probably his erect penis. This area is covered by a hand placed dome-shaped on the whole lithograph, which increases the sense of an interior or a cavern.
