There are two long horizontal images with monochromatic abstract imagery. The image on the left has a calf and foot, extending from center right to the bottom of the image. The leg has no skin and shows the muscle, bone, and tendons. There is a circle at center left with a spiked gear coming out of it. There are objects in the image on the right that look like ribs. There is a furry object in the bottom. Both images are in shades of grey.
