Two, identical, color images on a "Bonus Photo" card. Each image is of a male figure shown from the waist up (identified as Andy Warhol). The man is nude and has a large, vertical scar on his chest. He is touching his proper right shoulder with his right hand. He is taking his picture with a carmera in his left hand. His eyes are closed. The flash of the camera is seen in the center right. The image on the right is smaller than the image on the left.
