Yeah for me it makes the right half of my desktop unusable.  We can
argue whether the desktop should be used but the fact is that it is
today - and for many people they have icons covering both sides.

Also, it doesn't really work on the GDM screen.  Which is our initial
user experience.

Anyway, in general, I think this is one of the best pieces of art that
the group has put together.  However, I think maybe the half screen of
lion head is a bit much.  Could we see the same design but without the
lion head - just the background textures, lines, and birds - for
comparison purposes?  As it is there may be a bit too much high
frequency information in it.
