This black and white print depicts geometric forms arranged to suggest some kind of mechanical contraption. Two larger circular forms are arranged side-by-side in the center of the composition. A line rest diagonally atop these forms and above the line an assortment of circular and less definite shapes and textures (depicted with cross-hatching and other techniques) are described.
