Description

Black and white image of a light-colored cube on top of a larger, wooden box. The wooden box is visible in three-quarters view, and the side near the right side of the image is open. There is a thin strip of wood nailed to the bottom of this open side of the box. The background is out of focus but appears to be an outdoor setting.
