Description
Literature

Black-and-white image of a face, possibly carved into stone. The face is gray and cracked and the nose is partially worn away. The eyes of the face are closed and there is a dark area in the left edge of the image which covers part of the face. There is another dark line, leading from the left corner of the figure's mouth to the bottom of the image. In the bottom right corner of the image there are words, projected backwards onto the image.
