Help me find an old New Yorker cartoon

A cartoon in the 1980s or 90s depicted a brick and was captioned something like "thousands of works of art, music, etc. compressed into a 3x4x5 inch brick". It might be by Mick Stevens. (I was reminded of it by the new ad for the iPad showing works of art and musical instruments in a hydraulic press.)

Here's everything the New Yorker's Cartoon Bank has under the subject "brick". Didn't see your cartoon there.

Response by poster: Yeah, I started there.

The style of humor, time frame, and New Yorker connection put me in the mind of B. Kliban, though a quick search for kliban brick didn’t bring anything up. There’s a GoComics archive, but it doesn’t seem to be searchable.
