A black and white print of a long white object with a bubble in the form of a postcard.

The black and white print shows a white object with a narrow stem rising diagonally from the left bottom edge across the center with a bulbous end at the top. A bubble sits atop the bulbous end. The narrow stem is held by a clip attached to a long thin handle that rises from the bottom center. There is handwriting in French on the narrow stem which reads in part, ce qui nous manque à tous, a portion of it is obscured by the clip.
