The colors used are black, dark and light orange, yellow, pink, tan, white, blue, and red. At the base of the print, there is text in tan that reads: "The theory of relativity, may certainly be a true description of the facts concerned, even though the theory a theory which took such liberties fully, with the help of what is nothing but a host of metaphors taken from the languages of physics, of biology, and of social life, works out / their categorical structure, and only recasts what has formed concentric circles, surrounded by smaller orbs of the same space; then again a vertical band filled with horizontal strokes; and lastly, two vertical bands of concentric circles". The print is signed and numbered (l.r.) "Eduardo Paolozzi A.P 7".

Ambivalence between optical isolation of form and openess in structuring while the stream of sub - atomic energy dribbles out. Each epoch is the static instantaneous picture of a process. This represents a / standstill of becoming not a static end, a condition of pluralism. / JUNE 1967" . Print is dedicated, signed and dated in pencil (l.r.) "For Dia
