Description

Black-and-white photo montage of a man. Man is bald and looking forward into camera. Man appears unshaven and there are well defined wrinkles on his forehead. The top of his head is cut through and opened at the right. A smaller version of the man's head is coming out of the head. The smaller head has a twisted expression.
