Embossed parts of columns on a white and gray background, a separation of the background below in red and gray, and also an open box with an egg in red and gray.
Manuel Capdevila is better known as a goldsmith, but was a plastic artist from XX century avant-garde. Despite not being popular subjects on his work, engraving and metaphisic are present in this untitle piece.
Metaphysical painting is known for using symbols such as an egg inside a box, as well because of the suggestion of open and rigid spaces like in the upper part of the piece.
