Description

A pod of seeds lies across the bottom of the page and a cross-section of a stem is above it. The page is divided in half horizontally by a diagonal line; the top half of the page is in shades of white and the bottom half is in shades of black. The seeds at the bottom are linear, extending outward from the stem in the center. The shape at the top of the page is similar to a star with seven points.
