An image of bird skeleton (possibly a moa - Apteryx being the genus of flightless birds) facing an 'A' shaped block form. These objects are placed within a flat and bare landscape with a sun/moon in the sky. There are horizontal perspectival lines that receeding to the horizon line and drafting lines intersecting the 'A' form, which show that it has been rendered in three point perspective. The bird skeleton, however, casts a shadow 'against' the sky area, which confuses the sense of depth otherwise conveyed in the image.
