The circle is a print of a muscular man sitting. He is wearing a white and gray robe. The white portion of the robe drapes over his left shoulder and onto a table. The gray robe portion covers part of his chest and goes between his legs. He is looking at a test tube in his right hand. His left hand holds a measuring device. Near his left foot is a black microscope. There is a cloud near his right knee. Other science equipment is behind his back.

In the rectangle is "**10**" printed in black ink indicating the number of shares. In the middle of the paper, towards the left edge is a corporate seal. The seal is a circle printed in black ink.

To the right of the circle is a large pink rectangle printed in small horizontal lines. The shares are also printed here in black. A rectangular piece is torn our of the pink rectangle. Presumably this is where the stock holder's name was printed. Below that is another red, patterned rectangle. Four horizontal gray lines break the document into sections.
