Rectangle image made of many small stacked square blocks with varying tones and highlights in each square, top left corner. The background is a solid black, pushing the squares into the foreground. The image is intended to reference Tetris, the tile-matching puzzle video game originally designed and programmed by Alexey Pajitnov in the Soviet Union. The blocks are hitting the top of the screen which means the player has lost.
