Humans have huge imagination. During our long evolution, whatever we have encountered makes our imagination become abundant. That is why we as humans cannot imagine that which we have not somehow encountered. Dali and Picasso are not stuck on normal perception, they were living a new world in art, that is why they could perceive what Congo painted not from their understanding but could feel it intuitively, I believe.
