Three rainbow-colored chess pieces (bishop, knight, and king); the knight sits in the background while the other 2 are on either side in the foreground; etched on the glass below the hologram is `MOTIF I, BENTON 1968'; the hologram is on a smaller piece of glass that is adhered to a larger piece of clear glass.
