Two corner sections of fine screen, one on each side of work, each about 6" square, seen against an orangish back-lit area; negative space is a rough, jagged `S' shape; both squares of screen make moire patterns; left square seems to project one inch out toward image plane, right square goes back one inch (description taken from notes in MOH accession file for this object number).
