Floor based sculpture with 3 elements in sandstone that sit on top of a very large almost black plate. The piece in the foreground has an arrow shape carved into it, and the piece of sandstone that it's carved from has irregular markings. To the right of this there is a shape like a spiral or shell cut open and on the left there is an upright form which has irregular markings towards the top. The arrow shape and the spiral have been painted with black paint with graphite in it, the same as on the dark plate below.
