Physical description

1 photograph : photoprint, with gouache ; sheet 80.8 x 54.1 cm

Lettering

Check the weight don't guess it

Lettering note

The phrase "Check the weight" is painted in black india ink, positioned to suggest it is being spoken by the hook, which has a shape like a human face. The phrase "don't guess it" is in white, apparently as a result of being painted on the negative in reverse
