Description

This is an image of a circle outlined in a thick, dark blue ring. A rectangular piece of paper is attached to the vertical center of the page using some sort of adhesive. This rectangular paper shows an image of four rectangular shapes with green and white centers. These rectangular shapes are similar to tickets: the short sides of the rectangles each have a half-circle cut out of each side.
Underneath this page, the rest of the circle is divided into four quadrants by a square. The background is blue and white. The patterns imitate a memory card with wiry lines running across each of the quadrants.
