Mychael says 'Usually the titles of my works come very early on and often before a single preparatory drawing has been done. In this case, however, I struggled to come up with perfect title until one day when I was at the British Museum doing some final bits of research. I was reading in Grayson Perry’s The Tomb of the Unknown Craftsman exhibition catalogue about the influence that Eduardo Paolozzi had on him and, in particular, the 1985 exhibition Lost Magic Kingdoms. As Grayson Perry has greatly inspired me, this title seemed the perfect homage.'
