Yes. One might, for example, sing in a monotonous tone, shifting through the scale by quarter-tones for each refrain:

Curlicues on curlicues
on curlicues on
curlicues on curlicues
on curlicues on
curlicues on curlicues
on curlicues on
curlicues on curlicues
on curlicues on
curlicues on curlicues
on curlicues on
curlicues on curlicues...

Or you could glue buckets of multicolored confetti onto some white marble Doric columns.

Or you could gild a lily.

Thanks! Although I think a lily is rococo.
Gilding a petunia might be more rococo minimalist.
Or a violet.

1. exhume J.H. Fragonard's corpse
2. grind his left femur to a fine powder
3. mix the powder into a can of flat black paint
4. paint Monsieur Fragonard's right femur with this mixture
5. allow the paint to dry for 24-36 hours
6. display the femur on a white card table, surrounded by a handful of withered petunia petals

7. Entitle it Le triomphe de Vénus.
