# How to insert two images (not really) side by side but at overlapping height

I am preparing my lecture notes in beamer slides. In a particular frame, a block (custom defined) consists of two tikzpictures and some texts. The only way to arrange them is like the following image.

I have no idea how to achieve this. Please help. The particular block is not a listed environment, so wrapfigure works. Following is an MWE to save you from writing the first few lines of code.

\documentclass[aspectratio=169,10pt, notheorems]{beamer}
\usepackage{mwe}
\begin{document}
\begin{frame}
\begin{block}
content
\end{block}
\end{frame}
\end{document}


PS: Please feel free to change the title of this question to make it more understandable.

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{graphicx,lipsum}

\begin{document}

\sloppy
\parshape 11
4cm \dimexpr \textwidth-4cm\relax
4cm \dimexpr \textwidth-4cm\relax
4cm \dimexpr \textwidth-4cm\relax
4cm \dimexpr \textwidth-8cm\relax
4cm \dimexpr \textwidth-8cm\relax
4cm \dimexpr \textwidth-8cm\relax
4cm \dimexpr \textwidth-8cm\relax
0cm \dimexpr \textwidth-4cm\relax
0cm \dimexpr \textwidth-4cm\relax
0cm \dimexpr \textwidth-4cm\relax
0cm \textwidth
\noindent
\begin{picture}(0,0)
\put(-4cm,-6\baselineskip){\includegraphics[width=3.8cm]{example-image-a}}
\put(\dimexpr\textwidth-7.8cm\relax,-9\baselineskip){\includegraphics[width=3.8cm]{example-image-b}}
\end{picture}%
\lipsum[1]
\end{document}


the \parshape primitive takes a sequence of lengths being the indent and length of each line, with a number being the length of the sequence of pairs.

• Thank you for your answer. Actually, I am getting a hard time adjusting the rigid units in your code into my block. Right now, I am trying to create an MWE. Jun 22 at 7:21
