Black-and-white image of a male figure positioned behind a chair. He is holding the back of the chair with his proper right hand and is holding the bottom of the seat with his left hand, as if he is about to throw the chair. The man's hair is disheveled. His mouth is wide open in anger as if he is roaring.
