Description
Inscriptions/Signature

Mounted on a blue-gray board, an image printed on a white square board depicts Ben Day-like dots of green, red and yellow. The dots seem to form a circular shape. The dots are more concentrated at the top of the circular shape and begin to spread out towards the edge. Below this, another piece of white board is adhered to the blue-gray board. This white board has had pieces on the left and right sides torn from it. The remaining shape of the white board resembles the stem of a goblet. The board that has been removed has been adhered to the left and right sides of the upper portion of the blue-gray board. Between the board with the image and the torn, white board, a small strip of sky blue paper appears. A strip of yellow paper appears on both sides of the torn, white board.
