Black and white semi-abstract image. The lines of this work are scratched into the oil medium, exposing the white of the aluminum. The lower third of the work depicts a large fish framed by abstract lines to his left and right that resemble seaweed and waves. Above the fish are a number of arms and hands in various states of abstraction. The fingers of the hands are labeled with numbers: the outstretched fingers of the upper right hand is labeled, from top to bottom, 5, 3, 4, 2, 9. Just left of center, another shape is also labeled with numbers. The simplified hand in the upper left is labeled with the equation 3y B/N 2/y and the number 5.
