Exhibitions

Two windows resembling black computer screens float at center. The smaller is ornately framed with a landscape (recalling late 15th or early 16th century woodcuts), and the larger is set into an architectural frame surmounted by an eye with a beard. Other windows framed by cloud-like ornamental motifs and nude male and female figures are partially visible at the top, bottom, left and right edges. At BL edge, there is a shelf of iconic objects; at BR edge there is a sun and clouds, and at TR edge there is a group of open books.
