Red image of a flat-faced bronze (?) Fong head sculpture from the Alice Kaplan collection; features round disks for eyes, a flat nose that looks as if it were broken off, and a skeleton-like mouth and teeth that look as though they were carved; shadow of head is visible on background wall; image in only viewable in the bottom right corner of the film.
