Lungs

A square sheet of thin cream colored paper with irregular edges. The paper has a gauzy appearance and a rough surface that includes bits of pulp. On this sheet are two black ovoid forms created by fiber-like black, white and gray lines. These various lines create the appearance of volume, but not substance for the ovoid forms.
