An abstract pencil drawing inside a gridded box that is four squares by four squares. The drawing is made up of geometric shapes drawn so that they appear three-dimensional. A series of these shapes runs from the upper left corner to the lower right corner of the box where they meet with the three shapes that hug the right side of the box. The drawing is done in light pencil, while the outside of the box and the inscription is done in much darker pencil.
