Abstract rendering of a hill on a horizon line.

Physical Description
This grayscale print depicts what appears to be an abstracted landscape suggestive of a hill on a horizon line. The lower two-thirds of the square composition are quite uniformly black while the upper third becomes increasingly lighter in value. The print shimmers with varying intensity when looked at under direct light as there appears to be mica incorporated in the ink.
