This is a black and white image. A band of four thick black lines begins in the top third of the image at the left side of the page, extends horizontally to the right side, circles up and around, crosses over itself to extend into the bottom right corner, circles around again, and crosses the page diagonally to end above the beginning of the band in the top left corner. Several columns of thin lines extend vertically from the bottom of the page up to the horizontal barrier created by the thick black lines. A gray set of lines form a band that begins at the bottom of the page in the center. They extend up around the circle in the top right corner of the image.
