The lower half of the sheet is dominated by the furrows of a ploughed field curving away into the distance. The upper half of the sheet reiterates the striped pattern of the field although the pattern now extends from left to right not front to back. A diagonal line, initially in black then splitting into a white and black part, cuts across the upper part of the image.
