A blurred image of a woman working on a food assembly line; in the foreground is a human male figure; from the waist down, he is a normal pair of legs and a hand holding a shopping bag bearing the logo of Amy’s Kitchen; from the waist up, he is the engraved portrait of Benjamin Franklin from a US $100 bill.
