Short A vivid red background features a series of white concentric shapes in this symmetrical square composition.
Long A symmetrical geometric pattern of white lines is formed on a red canvas. In descending order of size, moving toward the center of the image, are a square, a circle, a diamond, a thin square, and a circle. An "x" and a "+" bifurcate each of these shapes. The lines and shapes appear to be hand-drawn due to their slight imperfections. Barely visible darker lines expand the pattern into greater detail.
