Three irregular-shaped objects which are cream in colour and have a marble or bone-like texture. The two on the left of the picture are grouped slightly closer together and apart from the one of the right. All three have a circular hole bored through roughly in the centre. The stones are set against a midnight blue background and are placed in a sort of white "moon" landscape of mountains. The stones are on a plateau in the foreground.
