White lines along frame, about one centimeter wide around entire edge. Picture appears to be in a studio with a hanging cloth backdrop. Front center, an image of a timepiece with the words “Westclock” and “Big Ben.” Above, a suspended image of a woman hangs from two white threads. Drawings in white chalk appear to float on the surface of the photograph. Drawn lines include a cube around the clock and a dotted arrow linking the portrait of the woman to the clock, which seems to be sitting on a table.
