Abstracted image of a person’s face and hand. The face is centered in the image, occupying the entire surface. The person is looking forward with black pupils and irises. He has swirling parallel lines on the left half of his face. His forehead above his eyebrow has a black pattern. His right hand is over his mouth, with his thumb next to the right eye.
